Title: Improvement of mechanical behaviors of a superlight Mg-Li base alloy by duplex phases and fine precipitates

Limitations of strength and formability are the major obstacles to the industrial application of magnesium alloys. Here, we demonstrate, by producing the duplex phases and fine intermetallic particles in composition-optimized superlight Mg-Li-Al alloys, a unique approach to simultaneously improve the comprehensive mechanical properties (a strength-ductility balance). In conclusion, the phase components and microstructures, including the size, morphology, and distribution of precipitated-intermetallic particles can be optimized by tuning the Li content, which strongly influences the work-hardening behavior and tension-compression yield asymmetry.
