Abstract

MgxTi100-x (35 ≤ x ≤ 80) alloys with hexagonal close packed (HCP), face centered cubic (FCC) and body centered cubic (BCC) structures were successfully synthesized by means of ball milling. MgxTi100-x alloys with a BCC structure at x = 35 and 50 and with a HCP structure at x = 80 were synthesized by milling of Mg and Ti powder using stainless steel milling balls and pots. At x = 65, the BCC and HCP phases were synthesized. MgxTi100-x alloys with a FCC structure were synthesized at x = 35 and 50 by milling using zirconia milling balls and pots. The FCC and HCP phases were synthesized at x = 65 and 80 using zirconia milling balls and pots. The crystal structure of MgxTi100-x alloys synthesized by the ball milling method depended on the materials of milling balls and pots. That indicates that milling products are determined by the dynamic energy given by the milling setup. The lattice parameters of MgxTi100-x in the HCP, FCC and BCC phases increased with increase of the Mg content, x.
