Abstract: In this paper we suggest a new method of producing a Fe-28 wt% Cu composite by compacting and subsequent sintering of bimetallic nanoparticles made of metals with limited mutual miscibility: iron and copper. The influence of the temperature of annealing on the structure and phase composition of consolidated composite samples has been analyzed. It has been shown that annealing in the temperature range of 200–400 °C induces the processes of low-temperature sintering of copper and iron. These processes are accompanied by the growth of the size of coherent scattering regions and the separation of the metallic components of nanoparticles. During thermal treatment in the range between 400 and 600 °C, adjacent sidewalls of large particles are welded together and large pores emerge in the sample. Further temperature increases cause the sample to shrink and the pores to become smaller. The consolidation of bimetallic nanoparticles consisting of iron and copper and their subsequent sintering allows for obtaining volumetric composites that have homogeneous structure without distinct macroscopic separation of phases as well as high strength characteristics.
