Data in support of "On the continuous and discontinuous precipitation of the L12 phase in Cu-Ni-Al alloys"
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Data in support of "On the continuous and discontinuous precipitation of the L12 phase in Cu-Ni-Al alloys" submitted for publication in Materialia. The data includes:
- Scanning electron microscopy images and the related particle distribution analyses. These can be read using conventional image processing software. The particle distribution analyses are shown in a spreadsheet and as a .pxp file that can be read using the Wavemetrics Igor Pro software. Optimum particle calculations are also included in the folder labelled SEM - Particle Analysis — these are provided in a spreadsheet format and include the thermodynamic modelling predictions for the APB energies (the spreadsheet includes an explanation of the method used).
- Differential Scanning Calorimetry raw data and associated analysis. The data can be read in traditional graphing software and additional files are also given in a .pxp format compatible with Wavemetrics Igor Pro.
- Electron Backscattered Diffraction data in the form of maps that can be read using conventional image processing software and .ctf files that can be used in Channel 5 EBSD data analysis software or MTex using Matlab.
- Hardness data spreadsheet read in conventional spreadsheet software.
- SEM/EDS maps of compositions and compositional analysis of the homogenised sample compositions. These can be read by conventional image processing and spreadsheet software.
- XRD raw data. Raw data can be opened in conventional spreadsheet managers.
