The wootz was then forged in many heating–cooling cycles (Fig. 2b). The secret of the production of Damascene blades from a wootz steel ingot was unfortunately lost during the 18th century, but has recently been rediscovered in a co-operation between a scientist and a blacksmith (Verhoeven et al. 1998; Verhoeven 2001). It turned out that the surface patterns on the blades resulted from the formation of bands of iron carbide (Fe3 C) particles initiated by the microsegregation of carbide-forming impurity elements being present in the wootz ingots (Fig.
2003). Phase changes of the order–disorder type are of special interest due to their reversibility. In this case atom jumps occur between diﬀerent sublattices of the ordered or at least partially ordered alloy. A fundamental understanding of the role of defects in intermetallic compounds can then be attempted, which will allow open questions on conﬁgurational kinetics of alloys to be answered. We have further seen that size reduction to obtain nanostructures is a current challenge in alloy physics.
The s, p or d character of the involved electrons, Pettifor introduced a phenomenological coordinate in order to group structural data within a simple and coherent framework. By running a one-dimensional string through the two-dimensional periodic system of elements, a so-called Mendeleev number (a combination of the factors atomic number and valence electron conﬁguration) is deﬁned (Pettifor 1990). Plotting the stable atomic arrangements at a given composition as a function of the Mendeleev number of the constituents provides a clear separation of structure types (Fig.
