silver atoms randomly occupy sites within the layer forming

T he calorimetric scans of the samples for which the
silver mole fractions were in the range 0.1 < x < 0 .25 clearly indicate transitions occuring at T x = 0 . 1 5 and T = 2 7 2 2 2 K f or x = = 2 6 8 2 2 K f or 0 . 2 0 (Fig. 21a) with the peak height ( F i g . 21b) of the transition increasing with
