Iron-molybdenum powders ground in a planetary ball mill under different operating conditions were studied by x-ray diffraction line profile analysis using a recently developed whole powder pattern modeling approach. The evolution of the microstructure, expressed in terms of size distribution of coherent scattering domains, average dislocation density, and edge/screw character, shows the importance of the main process parameters: the ratio between jar and main disk rotation speeds, and ball milling time. A characteristic three-stage process is observed, with work hardening followed by particle flattening/bending before nanocrystalline grains form by a fragmentation process triggered by localized deformation. The relationship between lattice defect density and domain size suggests a progressive transition between statistically stored to geometrically necessary dislocations, with the latter mostly present as excess dislocations at the nanodomain boundary.

Abstract

Iron-molybdenum powders ground in a planetary ball mill under different operating conditions were studied by x-ray diffraction line profile analysis using a recently developed whole powder pattern modeling approach. The evolution of the microstructure, expressed in terms of size distribution of coherent scattering domains, average dislocation density, and edge/screw character, shows the importance of the main process parameters: the ratio between jar and main disk rotation speeds, and ball milling time. A characteristic three-stage process is observed, with work hardening followed by particle flattening/bending before nanocrystalline grains form by a fragmentation process triggered by localized deformation. The relationship between lattice defect density and domain size suggests a progressive transition between statistically stored to geometrically necessary dislocations, with the latter mostly present as excess dislocations at the nanodomain boundary.
