Application of Doppler Broadening of Annihilation Radiation Technique to Evaluate the Microhardness Variations during Isochronal Annealing of Al and Al (Mn) Alloys

Magda Mohammed El Sayed Abd El Wahab ; W. Arafa 


Doppler broadening measurements have been carried out to study the isochronal annealing of cold-worked commercial pure Al (99.5%) and Al-1 wt.% Mn alloys. The deduced line shape and wing parameters are investigated in the range from room temperature to 823 K and correlated with the corresponding microhardness measurements. The vacancy migration and the effect of the precipitated Al6 Mn in Al (Mn) alloys could be probed as a function of annealing temperature. Three stages of microstructures can be distinguished in both Al and Al (Mn) alloys, which are recovery, partial recrystallization, and complete recrystallization. The line shape parameter-wing parameter (S-W) map indicates the same behavior in both alloys at high temperature. However, at low temperatures, Al (Mn) shows different behavior from the linear trajectory Al alloy.
