High-Throughput Determination of Interdiffusivities for Ni-Al-Cr Alloys at 1173 K through a Combination of Diffusion Multiple and Numerical Inverse Method


Article Preview

In this report, a combination of the diffusion multiple technique and the recently developed numerical inverse method was employed for a high–throughput determination of interdiffusivity matrices in Ni–Al–Cr alloys. A face–centered cubic (fcc) quinary Ni–Al–Cr diffusion multiple at 1173 K was carefully prepared by means of the hot–pressing technique. Based on the composition profiles measured by the field emission electron probe micro analysis (FE–EPMA), the composition–dependent interdiffusivity matrices in ternary Ni–rich Ni–Al–Cr system at 1173 K were then efficiently determined using the numerical inverse method.
