    Oxidation of alloy often involves chemical partition and injection of vacancies. Chemical partition is the consequence of selective oxidation, while injection of vacancies is associated with the differences of diffusivity of cations and anions. It is far from clear as how the injected vacancies...

    TEM and SAED studies were conducted to clarify a difference in age-hardening mechanism with changes of gold content in Au-Cu-Ag ternary alloys, 18K, 16K, and 14K gold alloys, for which the ratio of copper to silver remained at 65 to 35 in weight. Age-hardening in the 18K alloy was attributed to...
