The relation of the X-ray small-angle scattering parameters to the results of transmission electron microscopy for spherical Guinier-Preston zones was investigated. Experimentally, the Guinier radius is found to equal (<R7>/<R5>1/2) and the Porod radius to equal <R3>/<R2>. These results were theoretically predicted by Baur and Gerold, A log normal distribution was found to be in close agreement with the experimental data. The use of this distribution allowed the size-distribution curve of spherical Guinier-Preston zones to be constructed from the X-ray parameters and from a knowledge of the metastable miscibility gap. This approach is used to follow the evolution of size distribution in both Al-Ag and Al-Zn alloys. The application of this approach to nncleation and growth as well as redistribution processes is discussed. Growth paths are established from the size distribution evolution curves through an Nv> construction. A brief discussion of the technique is included.
