Examining the Pearlite Growth Interface in a Fe-C-Mn Alloy

Abstract

A method of collecting composition data and examining structural features of pearlite lamellae and the parent austenite at the growth interface in a 13wt. % manganese steel has been demonstrated with the use of Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM). The combination of composition data and the structural features observed at the growth interface show that available theories of pearlite growth cannot explain all the observations. Keywords—Interfaces, Phase transformations, Pearlite, Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM).
