The structure of a decagonal Al72Ni20Co8 quasicrystal with space group P10(5)/mmc has been determined on the basis of a single-crystal X-ray data set using the five-dimensional description. The best-fit model structure based on a cluster model having lower symmetry than the decagonal symmetry with 103 parameters gives wR = 0.045 and R = 0.063 for 449(More)
A novel density modification method is applied for the first time to phase reconstruction of x-ray single crystal data of quasicrystals. The structure of icosahedral Zn-Mg-Ho quasicrystals has been determined by means of this ab initio structure determination within a framework of a 6D description. The location, size, and shape of the occupation domains are(More)
The atomic structure of the Zn6Mg3Ho icosahedral quasicrystal has been studied by high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF-STEM) with Z-contrast (Z: atomic number). We demonstrate that in particular Z-contrast imaging is quite powerful for specifying heavy atom positions in the quasicrystalline compound, as shown by a(More)
