An Effect of the Composition and Fabrication Method on the Structure of the Compounds with Skutterudite Lattice
The intermetallic compounds with a skuttedrudite structure were prepared by powder metallurgy methods including mechanical synthesis and pressure sintering. The obtained powders were subjected to milling so as to obtain powders of a nanocrystalline structure. In this work results of phase analysis carried out at particular stages of powders fabrication are presented and the changes in parameters of their crystalline structure are analysed, including the arrangement of X-type atoms within their crystalline lattice which was studied by the Rietveld method.
