Bi-Zn system has a phase diagram with a miscibility gap where critical point is at Bi$$_{15}$$Zn$$_{85}$$. It is known that concentration fluctuation increases on approaching to the miscibility gap. Earlier studies suggested that the miscibility gap is attributed to difference in atomic size between Bi and Zn. Recent developments of instrument and analysis technique enable us to deduce partial structures and demonstrate atomic configurations in liquid. We performed detailed analysis on medium-range structure in liquid Bi$$_{50}$$Zn$$_{50}$$ by using neutron diffraction data obtained by the two-axis diffractometer, HERMES, installed in JRR-3M, JAEA and, X-ray diffraction at BL08W beamline in SPring-8, Hyogo, Japan. 3D atomic structural model obtained by Revere Monte Carlo technique exhibits temperature evolution of concentration fluctuations in medium-range structure, which suggests that phase separation tendency appears even in the edge of the miscibility gap of liquid Bi-Zn.
