Amorphous FeTi, Fe2Ti, and their crystalline counterparts are compared by measurements of x-ray diffraction, conductivity, and 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. In FeTi one has the unique opportunity to compare a cubic crystal with its amorphous analog. X-ray diffraction and hyperfine interactions indicate no clear correlation between the crystalline and the amorphous states. The electrical conductivity exhibits distinctive behavior for the two states.
