Abstract

The transformations occurring on annealing an as-spun amorphous Al75Cu15V10 alloy are studied by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). A continuous growth of icosahedral clusters, which are present already in the as-spun sample, is revealed. The size of the clusters estimated from the diffuse X-ray peak widths is consistent with the size of the modulation observed in the bright field TEM images.
