The study on charge-density distribution in TiAl by quantitative electron crystallography method

  • Yu Miao (a1), Jing Zhu (a1), X.W. Lin (a1) and W.J. Jiang (a2)


Structure factors of μ-TiAl equiaxed grain in TiAl duplex intermetallic compound before and after V-alloying were measured by the quantitative electron crystallography method. Then the structure factors were transferred into charge-density distributions of real space. Comparing the charge-density distributions in γ-TiAl with those in V-alloyed γ-TiAl, it was found that V-alloying with the optimum amount decreases the electronic charge density in the Ti-Ti interatomic bond, and increases the electronic charge density in the Al-Al interatomic bond and Ti-Al interatomic bond. Thus, the anisotropy of charge-density distribution in γ-TiAl equiaxed grain is reduced.
