Local order of liquid and supercooled zirconium by ab initio molecular dynamics.


It has been suggested that icosahedral short-range order (SRO) occurs in deeply undercooled melts of pure metallic elements. We report results of first-principles molecular dynamics simulations for stable and undercooled zirconium liquids. Our results emphasize the occurrence of a local order more complex than the icosahedral one. For stable liquid, the… (More)
