Core-shell particle structures have received considerable recent attention because it has been demonstrated that the core properties can be significantly altered by the shell [,]. The majority of research in this field has concentrated on free standing particle systems with or without ordering in two or three dimensions [1,2]. Recent work on Al-Sc-Zr alloys [] has shown that a core-shell structure may also be responsible for the modification of properties in a precipitate-hardened alloy system. It was demonstrated that the precipitates contained Sc and Zr, but that the distribution of Zr was not homogeneous. Instead, a Zr rich shell surrounded an Al3Sc core. In this report we use the compositional sensitivity of Z-contrast imaging to show that the addition of Zr to an Al-Sc alloy leads to formation of a complex Al3(Sc,Zr) core/shell structure. [] B.T.
