Title: Packing of Russian doll clusters to form a nanometer-scale CsCl-type compound in a Cr–Zn–Sn complex metallic alloy

Abstract

A new cubic complex metallic alloy phase, Cr22Zn72Sn24, with a lattice parameter near 2.5 nm was discovered in crystals grown using a Zn/Sn flux. The structure consists of Russian doll clusters or a 3-d network of Cr-centered icosahedra (shown) with bcc-metal fragments in void spaces.
