Paper Abstract

Small angle neutron scattering is a unique tool in the study of the precipitation phenomena. The size, shape, number density, volume fraction and chemical composition of the precipitates can be unambiguously determined and the kinetic process can be investigated by using samples that have undergone different heat treatments or by 'in situ' experiments. Systems exhibiting slow kinetics and low precipitate phase concentration, fast kinetics for which low temperature experiments are required to 'freeze' the precipitate structure and 'in situ' experiments will be discussed. The experimental results are interpreted by kinetic models which describe the precipitation process in these diverse growth conditions.
