The morphological transition and growth mechanism of Al3Ni phase during solidification at the liquid Al/solid Ni interface was investigated through synchrotron radiography. The remelted peritectic Al3Ni is dominated by coalescence of adjacent grains and precipitation with the morphology changing from columnar, irregular, scallop type to faceted shape. The hollow proeutectic Al3Ni is formed on a solid base. The increased r/R ratio and steep variation lead to the change from regular to irregular hollowness with asymmetrical shape.
