Apparatus used in the experiments. a: Induction furnace devoted to elaboration of the master alloys. View of the cold crucible located in a vacuum chamber. The supply frequency is 14 kHz and the total Joule power ranges between 8 to 14 kW; b: View and scheme of the capsule containing AlN nanoparticles to be immersed in the liquid metal matrix. The capsule was prepared in a glove box; c: View of the final master alloy ingot; d: Scheme of the Bridgman furnace used to solidify the sample under controlled electromagnetic stirring (VB2) produced by a traveling magnetic field.
