Mechanical Alloying: A Novel Technique to Synthesize Advanced Materials

Figure 2

(a). Deformation characteristics of representative constituents of starting powders in mechanical alloying. Note that the ductile metal powders (metals A and B) get flattened, while the brittle intermetallic and dispersoid particles get fragmented into smaller particles. (b). Ball-powder-ball collision of powder mixture during mechanical alloying.
