Effect of Mg Contents on Trapping Efficiency in Al-Mg System Using PAS
PLT and the Doppler broadening S-parameter were used to characterize the Al-Mg alloys, AA5005, AA5051, AA5052 and AA5083. The trapping efficiencies of these alloys were estimated to be 2.42 x 109, 2.29 x 109, 2.24 x 109 and 2.27 x 109 s-1 cm3, respectively, and the corresponding trapping cross-sections were estimated to be 2.66 x 10-16, 2.14 x 10-16, 2.10 x 10-16 and 3.51 x 10-16 cm2. It was found to be very clear that the mean lifetime and S-parameter exhibited the same behaviour as a function of the degree of deformation, and that they saturated at the same degree of thickness reduction.
