A Partial Isothermal Section at 1000 °C of Al-Mn-Fe Phase Diagram in Vicinity of Taylor Phase and Decagonal Quasicrystal

Altogether 19 alloys of an Al-Mn-Fe system with compositions near to the Taylor phase and/or the decagonal quasicrystal were characterised by the x-ray diffraction and the energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy coupled with the scanning electron microscopy, after annealing at 1000 °C for 330 h. The obtained experimental results were used to propose a partial isothermal section at 1000 °C of the Al-Mn-Fe phase diagram. The ternary T-phase area of an untypical saddle shape was found to touch the Al-Mn binary one. The γ2-phase was found to be stable between 2 and 30 at.% of Fe at 1000 °C and boundaries between γ1- and γ2-areas are expected to be located very close to the Al-Mn binary.
