Aluminum matrix composites, reinforced by 0.15μm and 5μm Al2O3 particles with 40% volume fractions were fabricated by squeeze casting technique. The microstructure characterization near the interfaces of Al2O3p/1070Al composites was investigated by SADP and HREM techniques. Results showed that high-density dislocations were generated in the 5μm-Al2O3p/Al composite due to the thermal mismatch stress. In contrast, the matrix of the 0.15μm-Al2O3p/Al composite appeared to be nearly free dislocations and some “micro distortion areas” of 1-5nm were observed, which was attributed to the dispersion of fine sub-micron particles and uniform distribution of the stress near the interfaces.
