Preparation of amorphous Ti1−xCux (0.10<x<=0.87) by mechanical alloying


We show that amorphous alloy powders of Cu and Ti can be produced over a broad composition range by mechanical alloying of the elemental powders in a high-energy ball mill. The amorphous powders are compared with liquid-quenched amorphous alloys of the same compositions using the techniques of x-ray diffraction and thermal analysis of crystallization. The two types of samples are found to have similar characteristics. Chemical analysis shows that only trace amounts of impurities are introduced in the alloys by the milling process.
