Abstract

The six-dimensional (6D) low density elimination method has been applied to solve an icosahedral Cd-Yb quasicrystal. It shows that i-Cd-Yb is composed of similar atomic clusters that exist in the cubic approximant crystals, but the inner most shell is highly disordered. A construction of the 6D cluster model of i-Cd-Yb is outlined.
