Magnesium rare earth alloys are commonly used in industry for their low density combined with high strength and creep resistance due to the unique precipitate structures that form in these alloys during ageing. To improve our scientific understanding and develop new alloys, work is needed to quantify the chemical and microstructural factors important in controlling the phase stability and precipitation mechanisms in these alloys. In this work, we investigate the ageing behavior of a Mg-Nd alloy during ageing at 250oC. The 3D morphologies and evolution of the different precipitate structures (β", β', and β1) are quantified using scanning transmission electron microscopy.
