Phase identification and microanalysis were carried out on the Mg-Al-Ca system in order to construct its ternary phase diagram. Two alloys (Mg-4.5%Al-1.9%Ca and Mg-4.5%Al-3.0%Ca) were used in the present investigation. The alloy samples were sealed under an inert atmosphere and heat treated at 290 °C and 370 °C for one week. Crystal structure identification of the phases was made by X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique. The qualitative chemical analysis of the individual phases was performed on the bulk and replicas of the samples using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) technique.
