Micrograph showing intermetallic particles contained in AA3104
The phases of the particles are distinguished based on morphological identification using SEM and compositional identification using EDS, with the β-Al6(Fe,Mn) phase being more geometric (needle like) in shape and α-Alx(Fe,Mn)3Si2 phase having...
