Electron diffraction of precipitates at copper-cordierite interfaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The precipitation of copper particles at the interface between a copper rod and a MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 ceramic was investigated by Robinson back-scattered SEM and convergent beam micro-diffraction TEM. A 20 μm wide zone depleted of copper separated the copper rod from a 70 μ m region of copper-containing particles dispersed in the ceramic matrix. The precipitates were crystallographically identified as elemental copper by matching of convergent beam, inelastically-scattered, Kikuchi patterns.
