Abstract

A thermodynamically stable face-centred icosahedral phase with a pentagonal dodecahedral solidification morphology has been found in Zn-Mg-RE (RE = Y, Tb, Dy, Ho or Er) alloys. We report here the structure, stability and morphology in this new group of icosahedral alloys on the basis of results for the Zn-Mg-Y system.
