Experimental Determination of the Structure of Quasicrystalline Alloys: Experimental Techniques and Modeling

  • Michel Boudard
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 55)


The diffraction and analysis techniques for the structure determination of quasicrystals are reviewed with examples of 1D and 3D quasicrystals. The various strategies for modeling are then presented.
