    Mg4Pd crystalline and amorphous alloys were prepared and X-ray diffraction patterns of these alloys were measured with synchrotron radiation using the large Debye-Scherrer camera installed at BL19B2 in SPring-8. The X-ray diffraction patterns have been successfully collected for the alloys. Using the X-ray diffraction pattern of the Mg4Pd crystalline alloy, crystallization stages of the Mg4Pd and Mg9Pd amorphous alloys have been reviewed. As a result, the phase precipitated at the first crystallization stage of the Mg4Pd amorphous alloy has been identified to be Mg4Pd, In addition, it has been conjectured that the phase precipitated at the third crystallization stage of the Mg 9Pd amorphous alloy is Mg4Pd, as well.
