Local Atomic Environments in the Manganese-Aluminum Icosahedral Phase

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 166)


The atomic scale structure of icosahedral phase MnAl was derived from experimental diffraction data. The resulting structure is compared to theoretical work and to other experimental data. A large array of this self-modulated structure, which is space-filling, was used for site topology studies.
