Single crystal Ni-base superalloys based on the  /  system are widely used in gas turbine applications. To understand the formation of  precipitates, including size distribution and growth, we performed in situ small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements at elevated temperatures and - together with TEM as well as , SEM imaging - studied changes in the precipitates in short and long time scale. In the early stages, a bimodal precipitate size distribution of precipitate is observed, which (depending on the annealing temperature) changes to a cuboidal or nearly spherical morphology with almostmore or less uniform ( unimodal?) size distribution. [Note: The term "more or less" is several times repeated in the text. I cannot imagine what it in fact means. Could you change it or explain in a more clear way?]
