Abstract

Ball milling was performed on an Mg-TiO powder mixture for 60 hours (h), yielding a Received in revised form 17 August 2015 reduction in crystallite sizes. The milled powder was annealed in nitrogen at 650 C, and crystalized into Accepted 14 November 2015 two face centred cubic (FCC) phases with different lattice parameters.
