Abstract

Superlattice is an ordered array of atoms that occur during their rearrangement from random site locations in the disordered solution to specific lattice sites in the ordered structure during phase transformation. This article provides a description of antiphase boundaries, their dislocations and degrees of ordering (long and short order). It focuses on the common superlattice structures and ordered phases observed in copper-gold and iron-aluminum alloy systems. These superlattice types can be referred to by Strukturbericht symbols and the prototype phase.
