Description: The steel sample with composition same as above was quenched from 800°C. The microstructure shows higher volume fraction of martensite. The martensite is appearing as the same straw-coloured entities. The straw tint is not influenced either by martensite size or its C-content. The retained austenite is appearing as bright white fine particles associated mostly with martensite.
