My first post-doctoral task was an experimental partitioning study of Ge between solid and liquid metal in the Fe-Ni system. Drake hired me to measure one particular partition coefficient GeDsol met/liq met. In those days, a single D at a single (T-P) condition was considered publishable, but Drake had somewhat despaired of getting reliable experimental results in metallic systems. I was the third post-doc assigned to this task. So Mike promised me that, if I could get a decent value for GeD, he would ditch this project and we would go on to better, more profitable...
