Abstract

The microstructures of precipitates in Al–Zn–Mg alloys in peak-aged condition have been studied using scanning transmission electron microscope. The same thermo-mechanical treatment was applied in all alloys. Investigation of peak-aged samples revealed that the most commonly found phases were η′ and η1 with their respective habit planes on {111}Al and {100}Al. η′ phases under [110]Al were analyzed and compared with η′ structure models. Furthermore, a close inspection of η1 phase as the second most found precipitate revealed that it incorporates an anti-phase resembling boundary, not observed in other orientation relationships that precipitates create with Al matrix, in addition, differences in matrix-precipitate interfaces between η′/η2 and η1 phases were noticed. This paper addresses the first part to the analysis of η′ phase. Next part is extended to the analysis of the η1 phase.
