The State of Grain Boundaries and Grain-Boundary Diffusion in Ultrafine-Grained Mo Obtained by Severe Plastic Deformation


Article Preview

The grain-boundary diffusion of Co in ultra-fine grained Mo processed by high-pressure torsion has been studied by emission Mössbauer spectroscopy and radio-tracer analysis. It is demonstrated that under the severe plastic deformation by high-pressure torsion the non-equilibrium grain boundaries are formed which are the ultra-fast diffusion paths. At annealing in the temperature range of 623-823 K the relaxation of the non-equilibrium boundaries proceeds and their properties approach to those of equilibrium boundaries of recrystallization origin.
