The ordering behavior of supersaturated metastable phases in β-Ti alloys

A phase resulting from quenching solution treated beta-Ti alloys has long been recognized as a metastable structure containing unusual phenomena, and is not well understood. Tweed structure consisting of the metastable phase was observed by transmission electron microscopy, and spot satellites inflicted by streaks were also observed in the lattice diffraction. The results of microstructural studies and diffraction pattern surveys have identified the metastable structure as the elastic strain zone caused by the supersaturation of solute atoms, which may be induced by the electron charge distribution and atomic bonding between solvent matrix and solute atoms, causing the tweed structure. This paper presents the main finding of a microstructural abnormality, and compares the results with ordering behavior such as premartensitic transformation, and reviews a new regularity generated in the metastable phase of the supersaturated state.
