Novel crystal structures in binary atomic mixtures arise when the attractive well is wide enough to allow double occupancy by small particles. The resulting crystals consist of ordered packings of self assembled linear structures comprised of a cylindrical tube of large particles enclosing a close packed core of small particles that corresponds to a(More)
The fabrication of ultra-stable glass films by vapour deposition and their subsequent front-like response to annealing are both manifestations of the enhancement of dynamics at the amorphous surface. We use the facilitated kinetic Ising model to model the behaviour of ultra-stable amorphous films when a coating is applied that suppresses the dynamics at the(More)
The enhancement of mobility at the surface of an amorphous alloy is studied using a combination of molecular dynamic simulations and normal mode analysis of the nonuniform distribution of Debye-Waller factors. The increased mobility at the surface is found to be associated with the appearance of Arrhenius temperature dependence. We show that the transverse(More)
A key property of glass forming alloys, the anomalously small volume difference with respect to the crystal, is shown to arise as a direct consequence of the soft repulsive potentials between metals. This feature of the inter-atomic potential is demonstrated to be responsible for a significant component of the glass forming ability of alloys due to the(More)
