AbstractAbstract Mechanical alloying of Ni-43·5 at.\% Mo powder was performed with three different types of ball mill: high-energy vibrating-frame grinder, medium-energy vibrational mill and low-energy rotational mill. In all cases, the synthesized alloys exhibited an amorphous structure with some unreacted crystalline Mo. Additionally, a new phase has been formed after milling in vibrational and rotational devices. This phase has been described as bcc, with a lattice parameter α = 3·43 Å. The differential scanning calorimetry (Dsc) for these amorphous alloys exhibited two exothermic features. The low-temperature effect has been attributed to the crystallization process of the amorphous phase. The second DSC thermal effect found at higher temperatures has been attributed to subsequent phase transformations resulting in a new phase defined as fee with a lattice parameter in the range 10·954–11·098 Å, depending on the mill employed. The existence of a supersaturated Ni(Mo) solid solution in the structure of the heated samples has also been confirmed.
