Abstract

© 2020 Acta Materialia Inc. MgZn2-type (Hf,Ta)Fe2 is a typical negative-thermal-expansion system, which expands during the establishment of ferromagnetic ordering in cooling. This abnormal behavior suggests that (Hf,Ta)Fe2 is a potential ingredient to produce a composite with zero thermal expansion. In this work, we find that the as-cast (Hf,Ta)Fe2 have Fe-rich grain boundaries, which disappear after annealing. It inspires us to produce a (Hf,Ta)Fe2/Fe composite by adding extra Fe in nonstoichiometric composition without annealing. After carefully tuning Hf/Ta ratio and Fe concentration, room-temperature zero-thermal-expansion is achieved in the sample with a composition of Hf0.80Ta0.20Fe2.5.
