Using the LaMg11Zr as the initial alloy,the LaMg11Zr+Ni composite was prepared by mechanical alloying,and the effect of ball-milling time on the amorphous structure of alloy powers was characterized by X-ray diffraction(XRD).The amorphous(LaMg11Zr+Ni) alloy can be obtained after 20 h ball-milling,and has the best electrochemical capacity,electrochemical cycle stability.
