Abstract [en]

A number of hexagonal phases displaying pseudo-icosahedral symmetry have been reported in Zn–Mg–RE alloy, but no cubic or orthorhombic approximants. In the present work another new hexagonal phase, H0 (a = 9.1A ˚ , c = 19.7A ˚ ), was found to coexist with H-(Zn,Mg)5Y. Their orientation relationship was determined to be h100iH0 || h100iH, [001]H0 || [001]H. Since their electron diffraction patterns are similar to the corresponding patterns of an icosahedral quasicrystal, they are both considered to be approximants of the Zn–Mg–Y icosahedral quasicrystal.
