  • Ti50Ni25Cu25 melt-spun ribbons, microstructures


Amorphous Ti50Ni25Cu25 (at.%) melt-spun ribbons were manufactured my the melt-spinning technique. Various amorphous-crystalline microstructure up to complete crystallization were established by heat treatment at 683 K. The arising microstructures were characterized. Use of transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning differential calorimetry (DSC) and optical metallography has been made. The crystallization occurred in form of spherical martensitic grains surrounded by amorphous matrix. Thin plate-like precipitates were formed inside of the grains leading to embrittlement. A change from single-stage martensitic transformation for shorter annealing times towards a two-stage transformation behavior concerning long-term heat treatments has been found in the DSC-curves. Analytical TEM studies revealed that the formation of subnanometric plate-like precipitates on {100}B2 planes of the parent B2 phase governed the two-stage transformation behavior
