Atom Probe Tomography investigations of microstructural evolution in an aged Nickel superalloy for exhaust applications

December 17, 2018

 

In collaboration with the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, Department of Earth Sciences and University of Oxford, the Department of Materials, Good Fabrications was able to investigate microstructural evolution in an aged Nickel superalloy for exhaust applications exposed to a Formula 1 racing environment.

 

This has been examined using a range of advanced electron microscopy-based techniques, atom probe tomography and high-sensitivity laser ablation mass spectrometry. 

 

This study has characterised the formation and evolution of γ’’ precipitates during ageing in the nickel superalloy Inconel 625.
