Core–shell nanoscale precipitates in Al–0.06 at.% Sc microalloyed with Tb, Ho, Tm or Lu


The age-hardening response at 300 C of Al–0.06Sc–0.02RE (at.%, with RE = Tb, Ho, Tm or Lu) is found to be similar to that of binary Al–0.08Sc (at.%), except that a shorter incubation period for hardening is observed, which is associated with nanoscale RE-rich Al3(RE1 xScx) precipitates. In addition, Al–0.06Sc–0.02Tb (at.%) has a much lower peak… (More)
