Interfaces in ordered intermetallics

In this paper, we have examined different types of interfaces that occur between orientational/translational variants generated during the ordering process. This has been illustrated citing examples of ordering of the FCC structure into DO22, Dla and Pt2Mo type structures in some nickel base alloys. Microstructures consisting of more than one ordered structure have also been investigated. Superlattice domains of DO22 and Pt2Mo type structures have also been found to coexist in a microscopic scale of mixing in Ni-V alloys while mixed domains of Dla and Pt2Mo type structures on a much finer scale have been observed in Ni-Mo alloys. The formation of different variants (rotational and translational) of ordered structure(s) from the disordered lattice has been explained on the basis of group theoretical and symmetry considerations.
