Metastable beta Ti alloys are perspective materials for a number of biomedical and aerospace applications. After quenching from temperatures above the beta transus, the microstructure of metastable beta Ti alloys consists of beta and omega phase. During subsequent heat treatment at lower temperatures, particles of alpha phase form and the microstructure becomes thermodynamically stable. Initial stages of alpha phase formation were characterized using advanced experimental techniques. The crystallographic relationship and the orientation of alpha lamellae with respect to beta phase matrix were studied.
