Redistribution of LaAl nearest-neighbor distances in the metallic glass Al 0

X-ray-absorption fine-structure ~XAFS! measurements of metallic glass Al 0.91La0.09 and a crystalline phase Al 11La3 formed by annealing of the glass were made at the La L3 edge and analyzed by the splice method. The first-neighbor partial radial distribution functions about the La atoms for the crystal and glass were obtained at T512 K demonstrating the… CONTINUE READING
