The TiB2/NiAl interfaces in reactive hot-pressing (RHP) processed NiAl-20 vol% TiB2in-situ composites were studied by means of high-resolution electron microscopy (HREM) including image simulation. There is no consistent orientation relationship between TiB2particles and the NiAl matrix. In most cases, the TiB2/NiAl interfaces are atomically flat, sharp and free from any interfacial phase. Atomic configuration at the TiB2/NiAl interface was investigated. A thin interfacial amorphous layer between TiB2and NiAl could be observed in some cases, which may act as a stress absorber. It was also observed that a thin interfacial phase which is still undetermined may exist at the TiB2/NiAl interface.
