Abstract: NixAl1-x alloys for 0.615 < x < 0.64 undergo a martensitic transformation upon cooling from a CsCl-type structure to a pseudo-orthorhombic structure [1]. The transformation temperature is extremely composition dependent [2] and for Ni0.625Al0.375 is ~ 80 K [1]. In previous research using an approximate cube of single crystal having x = 0.625 [3], significant strain anisotropy was detected above 80 K. It was suggested that this anomalous strain anisotropy indicated the presence of a martensite precursor within the cubic “parent” phase. The aim of the current research project is to investigate the precursive structural behaviour in the above Ni0.625Al0.375 single crystal using both elastic and inelastic neutron scattering. Results from initial experiments at both the Wombat and Taipan instruments at the Opal Research Reactor will be presented and discussed in relation to previously published strain anisotropy data determined using variable temperature, capacitance dilatometry [3].
