Abstract: Amorphous and nanocrystalline phases generated in an elemental blend of Al94.5Cr3Co1.5Ce1 composition (at.%) in the course of mechanical alloying (MA) have been investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). It has been reported that rapid solidification processing (RSP) of the same composition generates a finely mixed unique structure consisting of nanoscale icosahedral (I) particles surrounded by a thin Al phase [1]. In contrast, MA of Al94.5Cr3Co1.5Ce1 composition carried out in the present study shows the formation of Al-based solid solutions along with partial 1 amorphisation. It emerges that during MA a wide difference in the atomic size of the alloying elements in solid solution plays a pivotal role in the amorphous phase formation. The possible causes of the difference in microstructure generated by MA and RSP hav...
