The Ti-Zr alloy system is isomorphous over the total concentration range. A neutron zero-scattering alloy can be obtained at the composition Ti0.676Zr0.324 because of negative and positive coherent neutron scattering amplitudes of Ti and Zr respectively. A (Ti0.676Zr0.324)D0.31 amorphous alloy was synthesized by mechanical alloying (MA) under a deuterium-gas atmosphere of 0.08 MPa. In contrast, it is found that the MA of Ti and Zr powders under a deuterium-gas atmosphere of 2.0 MPa forms a nanocrystalline (Ti0.676Zr0.324)D1.54 alloy, which is composed of TiH2 and ZrH2 crystalline compounds.
