Melt quenching-the method of quenching from the liquid state-provides new opportunities for producing advanced materials with a unique combination of properties. In the process of melt quenching, attainment of critical cooling rates can produce specific structural states of the material. Nanocrystalline materials produced by melt quenching are clas
Introduction. Melt-quenched nanocrystals (type I nanocrystals). Nanocrystals produced by melt quenching at rates close to critical (type II nanocrystals). Nanocrystals produced by controlled annealing of the amorphous state (type III nanocrystals). Nanocrystals produced by megaplastic deformation of the amorphous state (type IV nanocrystals).
