Abstract

A new ternary ZrxCuyCz phase is observed in the reactively infiltrated ZrC/W composite. The X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy analyses reveal that the ZrxCuyCz phase has a same rocksalt structure as ZrC, but possesses sixfold long-period structure with lattice constant of 2.88 ± 0.07 nm. This finding indicates the existence of ZrxCuyCz compound, which expands the ternary carbides and nitrides permutation space.
