Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The capabilities and developmental needs of diffusion-multiple approach, that enables the study of phase diagrams were investigated. The approach is developed to create composition gradients and intermetallic phases by long-term annealing of junctions of three or more phases/alloys to study phase diagrams. Many microscale probes can also be used to study several materials phenomena, such as order-disordering transformation. The diffusion-multiple approach can increase the efficiency of phase diagram mapping by orders of magnitude, making it possible to have phase diagrams available in advance of alloy design if the diffusion multiples are made early.
