Abstract

This review describes the characteristic microstructural features that attend the transformations to long-range order in a variety of substitutional metallic solid solutions. The emphasis is placed on observations made by transmission electron microscopy and diffraction of thin alloy specimens; however, correlations are also made with light microscopy, x-ray diffraction and hardness. Of primary concern is the initiation of the transitions and their progress to completion. This includes discussion of the mechanisms and associated morphologies of homogeneous nucleation, heterogeneous nucleation and continuous ordering, as well as the mechanisms of growth, coarsening and strain-relief.
