High energy ball milling (mechanical alloying) has recently become a popular research topic. As the non-equilibrium processing method, this technique may be used for the synthesis of many materials, including metastable ones. In many cases these materials exhibit the structure and properties quite different from materials prepared by conventional methods. In this paper some examples of metastable structures synthesized by mechanical alloying are described. The results of mechanical alloying in the Fe-Al system are presented as well.
