Abstract Scope U-Nb alloys are of interest in defense applications and could potentially be used for metallic reactor fuels. However, long term aging and other thermal excursions have an impact on the corrosion resistance and mechanical properties of interest in these industries. The aging pathways are complex, and this research focuses on the non-lamellar (NL3) mechanism, which is kinetically competitive with a discontinuous precipitation (DP) reaction. The competition between the NL3 and DP reactions influences the subsequent decomposition steps. Samples aged at 500 and 600°C for 10, 100, and 10000 minutes that exhibit NL3 structures were investigated by local electrode atom probe. Results indicate that the precipitates have strong Nb partitioning (~0 at.% Nb within the precipitates, ~40 at.% Nb within matrix) and have coalesced at longer aging times. The Nb distribution inside of and between precipitates is used to gain insight into the details of the growth kinetics.
