The overall objective is the study of: a) amorphous powders of iron, nickel-metalloid (P, Si, B) alloys with special emphasis in the optimization of parameters characterizing the mechanical alloying process and later heat treatment needed to induce low coercivity and magnetic losses; b) intermetallic compounds obtained in the disordered state by rapid solidification and mechanical alloying and later analysis of the kinetics of ordering; c) cesium fluorozirconate and trivalent indium fluoride as halide glasses for optical fibers, with special attention to the glass-forming tendency and crystallization kinetics control; d) difussion mechanisms of oxygen and oxidation kinetics in thin films of silicon carbide obtained by CVD. All these studies will be undertaken in collaboration with other groups of research.
