“What is the microstructure of materials during the Eutectic phase?”
For each material, it is well known that when the eutectic point is reached, the material will melt and decompose. However, have you ever wondered what the microstructure of this substance looks like during the reverse process? Well, let’s make an investigation. When a eutectic quickly cools down into two substances, the once conjoined phases must now be separated. This cause bands of alternating phases to be formed, thus forming a lamellar microstructure!
