  • Al-7Si-3Cu-Fe, Al-7Si-3Cu-Fe-0.5Mn, Al-12Si-Mg-Ni-Cu, A319 and A380 alloys containing 0.0020, 0.0040, 0.0080, 0.1 and 0.2 wt.% Ca were used in this research to study the effects of Ca additions on their microstructures and hardness. Samples from the molten alloys were taken and characterized by SEM, EDS and EBSD analysis. Electron backscatter diffraction patterns (EBSDPs) were used to assess the crystallographic characteristics of calcium compounds, thus identifying their stoichiometry. On the other hand, microstructural formation was predicted using an adapted version of Thermo-Calc{sup TM} software. Compounds which contain calcium-rich particles with 'needle-like' or 'plate-like' morphologies were consistent with that of the hexagonalmore » CaAl{sub 2}Si{sub 2} intermetallic phase in all of the alloys used. Moreover, it was found that Ca additions of 40 ppm and higher, refined the eutectic Si particles and coarsened the iron-rich intermetallics as well. Brinell hardness was evaluated to determine the effect of calcium concentration on the hardness of the Al-Si alloys used in this study.« less
  • The crystal structure of the strontium ferrite Sr{sub 5}Fe{sub 6}O{sub 15.4}, was solved by direct methods on electron diffraction tomography data acquired on a transmission electron microscope. The refined cell parameters are a=27.4047(3) Å, b=5.48590(7) Å and c=42.7442(4) Å in Fm2m symmetry. Its structure is built up from the intergrowth sequence between a quadruple perovskite-type layer with a complex rock-salt (RS)-type block. In the latter iron atoms are found in two different environments : tetragonal pyramid and tetrahedron. The structural model was refined by Rietveld method based on the powder X-ray diffraction pattern. - Highlights: • Complex structure of Sr{submore » 5}Fe{sub 6}O{sub 15.4} solved by electron diffraction tomography. • Observed Fourier maps allow determining missing oxygen atoms in the structure. • Structural model refined from powder X-ray diffraction data. • Intergrowth between quadruple perovskite layer with double rock-salt-type layer.« less
  • On the basis of a semirigid model for the bending-rotational Hamiltonian, the authors have interpreted the experimental electron diffraction data for difluorides of manganese, iron, cobalt, and nickel. The authors have established that all the studied molecules have a linear equilibrium configuration with D/sub infinity h/ symmetry. The authors have refined values of the frequencies of the totally symmetric vibrations and the molecular constants.
