Ranganathan, S and Singh, Alok K and Tendeloo, van G (1991) Quasicrystals and their crystalline homologues in the Al–Mn–Cu ternary alloys. In: Philosophical Magazine A , 64 (2). pp. 413-427.Full text not available from this repository.
Electron diffraction and high-resolution electron microscopy have been employed to differentiate among icosahedral, decagonal and crystalline particles that occur in as-cast and rapidly solidified Al-Mn-Cu alloys. The resemblance between decagonal quasicrystals and crystals in their electron diffraction patterns is striking. The crystalline structure is based on the orthorhombic ‘Al3Mn’ structure, but also a new monoclinic phase called ‘X’ has been discovered and described here. The present observations are also closely related to the orthorhombic structures in Al60Mn11Ni4. The occurrence of fine-scale twinning and fragmentation into domains explains the complex diffraction effects.
