Title
TEM study and Monte-Carlo simulation of nano-scale Co particles precipitated in a Cu matrix

Abstract
The precipitation behavior of nano-scale Co particles formed in a Cu-Co alloy was studied by means of transmission electron microscopy and a Monte-Carlo simulation. Small coherent Co particles were randomly formed at the early stage of the precipitation process. Two or more Co precipitates linked together were linearly arranged to the <100> orientation of the copper matrix, at the later stage of the coherent precipitation. Finally, the particles lost their coherency to the Cu matrix, and incoherent Co precipitates appeared. The Monte-Carlo simulation, which took both chemical and magnetic interactions into account, strongly suggested that the coupling of coherent Co particles was realized as a result of the chemical and magnetic interactions between the Co particles, which are adjacent to each other.
