A comparison of small-angle scattering with electron microscopy techniques to characterize low volume fractions of heterogeneously distributed precipitates in alloys

The characterization of Zr-containing dispersoids in aluminum alloys is challenging due to their broad size distribution, low volume fraction, and heterogeneous distribution within the grains. In this work, small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) were compared to scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) regarding their capability to characterize Zr-containing dispersoids in aluminum alloys. It was demonstrated that both scattering techniques are suitable tools to characterize dispersoids in a multiphase industrial aluminum alloy. While SAXS is more sensitive than SANS due to the high electron density of Zr, SANS has the advantage of being able to probe a much larger sample volume. The combination of SAXS and SANS allows for the verification that the dispersoids can be separated from other precipitate phases. The size distribution obtained from SAXS, SANS and TEM showed good agreement. The SEM-derived size distributions were, however, found to significantly deviate from those of the other techniques, which can be explained by considering the resolution-limited restrictions of the different techniques
