The phase-separation behaviour of γ’ precipitates in Ni-7.1Al-6.7Si alloy was investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). When the alloy is aged at 1173K, coherent spherical γ’ particles having ordered L12 structure appear in γ matrix having disordered A1 structure. When the two-phase microstructure of γ + γ’ is aged at 973K, spherical γ particles precipitate in the individual γ’ precipitates. In the course of ageing at 973K, the new γ particles grow keeping the spherical shape, their number gradually decreases and finally γ particles aging at 1173K gradually change their shape from sphere to cuboid, but do not practically change their size, i.e. such phase-separation behaviour brings the decelerated growth of γ’ precipitates.
