Synthesis of Cu–W Nanocomposite by High-Energy Ball Milling
Abstract:The Cu–W bulk nanocomposites of different compositions were successfully synthesized by high-energy ball milling of elemental powders. The nanocrystalline nature of the Cu–W composite powder is confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis, transmission electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The Cu–W nanocomposite powder could be sintered at 300–400 °C below the sintering temperature of the un-milled Cu–W powders. The Cu–W nanocomposites showed superior densification and hardness than that of un-milled Cu–W composites. The nanocomposites also have three times higher hardness to resistivity ratio in comparison to Oxygen free high conductivity copper.
