The lattice parameters and strain of ϒ'-phase particles in Nickel-base superalloys, which are duplex type alloys designed for turbine blades and widely called “Ni-base single crystal superalloys”; they are accurately determined by Synchrotron Radiation parallel-beam diffractometry. The superalloys have ϒ' precipitates, an ordered FCC structure based on Ni3Al, in a γ-matrix having disordered FCC structure.
In addition, the preparation method of stress-free ϒ'-phase particles, with no composition change in the preparation process, was newly developed to measure the coherency strain of ϒ'-particles due to lattice misfit. The prepared ϒ'-phase particles are similar in composition and form to ϒ'-phase particles in the γ-matrices. The method for determining of the lattice misfit between the γ and γ’ particles was previously reported.
