Abstract

The cohesive energy of the Al-Mn Mackay icosahedron (MI) was estimated for different variants of chemical order, using pair-bonding energies. This problem is related to the nucleation of i-AlMn phase in sequentially deposited thin films. The chemically ordered MI comes out as the thermodynamically most stable configuration. The role of kinetic factors during deposition is also discussed.
