Journal of Alloys and Compounds   277-282   Jun 2019   [Refereed]
© 2019 Elsevier B.V. We have identified a novel long-period stacking/order (LPSO) phase in a Mg-Ni-Y alloy, which provides novel LPSO structural features regarding both the stacking/order aspects; the 12R-type stacking sequence and the in-plane m...

Acta Materialia   163 226-239   Jan 2019   [Refereed]
© 2018 Acta Materialia Inc. The unusual increase in the strength by extrusion is a unique feature of recently developed Mg alloys containing the LPSO phase. In this study, we first elucidated the detailed mechanisms that induce this drastic streng...
