A metastable phase Al3Cu2

  • P. Ramachandrarao
  • M. Laridjani


A new metastable intermediate phase having a trigonal unit cell belonging to the space groupP¯3ml has been detected in a rapidly solidified aluminium-45 at. % copper alloy. The unit cell dimensions area=4.106 andc=5.094 å. With five atoms per unit cell, the observed structure can be regarded as an isotype of Al3Ni2.
