Continuous series of metastable solid solutions in silver-copper alloys


A technique has been devised by which small amounts of liquid alloys can be cooled at rates high enough to prevent the normal process of nucleation and growth of equilibrium phases. The classical method for achieving high rates of cooling consists of injecting a small droplet of molten alloy into a liquid quenching bath. Olsen and Hultgren used such a technique in a study of the effect of the rate of cooling on the homogeneity of solid solutions.(1)
