Abstract

This paper deals with the morphology and surface chemistry of faceted voids existing in single-quasicrystalline icosahedral Al70.5 Pd21.0Mn8.5. By observation with a scanning electron microscope of surfaces obtained by cleavage of the quasicrystal, the habit planes of the dodecahedral voids were identified. The chemical surface composition of the void surface was determined by Auger electron spectroscopy after cleavage in ultra-high vacuum.
