On the basis of lattice stabilities cited from Dinsdale [1], the optimization of the Copper-Lutetium binary system is carried out using the Thermo-calc software [2,3]. Thermo-calc software for evaluating the thermodynamic, kinetic and thermo-physical model parameters from experimental or theoretically calculated data by solving the weighted least squares problem. The phase diagram and thermochemical data were used as input to the program for the optimization. Each piece of selected information was given a certain weight by personal judgment and verified by trial and error method during the assessment until most of the selected experimental information was reproduced.
