Abstract

Single grains of icosahedral Cd84Yb16 quasicrystalline phase were characterized using high resolution transmission electron microcopy (HRTEM) technique. Image reconstruction of the obtained multiple through-focal series for both the two and five-fold axes are consistent with the local cluster structure of concentric polyhedra consisting of Cd tetrahedron (1/3 occupied icosahedron), Cd dodecahedron, Yb icosahedron and a Cd icosidodecahedron. Edge-sharing of the clusters can result in complete tiling of the 2-D projections. Simple matching rules are being investigated to construct a 3-D model.
