In this work, the crystal structure of the rod-shaped precipitate in aged Al -1.0 mass% Mg2Ge alloy at 523 K has been investigated by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), electron diffraction technique and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). The rod-shaped precipitate in its alloy has showed the similar arrangement of bright dots in its HRTEM images and selected area diffraction pattern (SADP) to those of the b’-phase in Al-Mg2Si alloy. But a lattice constant of this precipitate in Al-Mg2Ge alloy was slightly larger than the b’-phase in Al-Mg2Si alloy. In addition, the new metastable phase has been found out in Al-Mg-Ge alloy.
