AbstractThe reaction of Zr/B multilayers with a 50 nm modulation period has been studied using scanning AC nanocalorimetry at a heating rate of approximately \(10^3 K/s\). We describe a data reduction algorithm to determine the rate of heat released from the multilayer. Two different exothermic peaks are identified in the nanocalorimetry signal: a shallow peak at low temperature (200–650°C) and a sharp peak at elevated temperature (650–800°C). TEM observation shows that the first peak corresponds to heterogeneous inter-diffusion and amorphization of Zr and B while the second peak is due to the crystallization of the amorphous Zr/B alloy to form \(ZrB_2\).
