Impact of structural complexity and disorder on lattice dynamics and thermal conductivity in the o- Al 13 Co 4 phase

Abstract

Combining inelastic neutron and x-ray scattering with atomic scale simulation, we report on a comprehensive study of the lattice dynamics and its relationship with the low thermal conductivity of the o-Al13Co4 phase, a periodic approximant (about 100 atoms per cell) to a decagonal quasicrystal. The obtained experimental data, phonon lifetimes, and temperature-independent lattice thermal conductivity can only be fully described by molecular dynamics simulations, using oscillating pair potential, when the disorder of 12 Al sites is properly taken into account. Our results pave the way for a detailed understanding of materials where structural complexity and local disorder are at play.
