Study on planar segregation of solute atoms in Mg-Al-Gd alloy system.

Leng Chen, Xin-Fu Gu, Ping Yang, Tadashi Furuhara

Solute segregation plays an important role in formation of long-period stacking ordered (LPSO) structure in Mg-M-RE (M: Zn, Ni etc., RE: Y, Gd, etc.) alloy systems. In this work, the planar segregation in Mg-Al-Gd alloy is characterized by high angle annular dark field (HAADF) scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and three-dimensional atom probe (3DAP). It is found there is no planar fault accompanying the segregation, and the spatial distribution of segregation may resemble the periodicity of LPSO structure. The segregation is further quantified by 3DAP, and it mainly enriches with Gd atoms. The segregation behaviour is rationalized by First-Principles calculation.
