Abstract: The evaporation of Po from its dilute solution in liquid lead–bismuth eutectic (LBE) was determined
between 700 and 1000 C in Ar/5%H2 by the transpiration method. Concurrent measurements of the
evaporation of LBE could be well reproduced by calculations using literature data, confirming conditions
of equilibrium and convective vapor transport in our transpiration method experiments. This allowed to
model the Po evaporation data and extract accurate temperature correlations for the Henry constant for
Po dissolved in LBE at two different Po concentrations. Extrapolations of the new correlations were in
excellent agreement with existing data at lower temperature.
