Abstract

Recently, cyclic transformations in which amorphization and crystallization occur sequentially have been observed under continuous ball milling. It is shown that this phenomenon does not have obvious analogs with the periodic redox reactions or with diffusive-reactive phenomena known in chemistry. A model that takes into account the destabilizing effect of the defects created by ball milling is presented and compared with experimental observations.
