A new approach to solve quasicrystalline atomic structures in 3-dimensional (3D) real space is presented: The atomic pair distribution function (PDF) of face centred icosahedral Ho9Mg26Zn65 [a(6D) = 2x5.18(3)A was obtained from in-house X-ray diffraction data (MoKa1). Starting with rational approximant models, derived from 1/1- and 2/1-Al-Mg-Zn, its local and medium range structure was refined (r < 27A; R = 12.9%) using the PDF data. 85% of all atoms show Frank-Kasper (FK) type coordinations… CONTINUE READING
