Icosahedral Quasicrystal Grains Growth and Evolution in Mg-Zn-Y
Unlike the growth of crystal, the growth of icosahedral quasicrystal seems to have its own characteristics. Petal-like icosahedral quasicrystal grains (i-phase grains) morphology usually has been observed in as-solidified quasicrystalline alloys. The distinguished morphology is belonged to a given i-phase grains growth evolution mechanism. We first introduced a novel model named “coherent” model to illustrate i-phase grains growth evolution.
