Article Preview

Diffraction experiments on electromagnetically levitated Nd-Fe-B alloys during solidification of the undercooled melt have been performed at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). By using high intensity synchrotron radiation complete diffraction spectra could be detected within a short period of some seconds thus enabling the observation of metastable solidification products that exhibits a limited lifetime. A metastable phase that crystallizes in wide composition range and that initiates the solidification of the stable Nd2Fe14B1-phase (φ-phase) have been observed.
