  1. Mechanical properties of materials are strongly dependent of their atomic arrangement as well as the sample dimension, particularly at the micrometer length scale. Here in this study, we investigated the small-scale mechanical properties of single-crystalline YCd 6, which is a rational approximant of the icosahedral Y-Cd quasicrystal. In situ microcompression tests revealed that shear localization always occurs on {101} planes, but the shear direction is not constrained to any particular crystallographic directions. Furthermore, the yield strengths show the size dependence with a power law exponent of 0.4. Shear localization on {101} planes and size-dependent yield strength are explained in termsmore » of a large interplanar spacing between {101} planes and the energetics of shear localization process, respectively. The mechanical behavior of the icosahedral Y-Cd quasicrystal is also compared to understand the influence of translational symmetry on the shear localization process in both YCd 6 and Y-Cd quasicrystal micropillars. Finally, the results of this study will provide an important insight in a fundamental understanding of shear localization process in novel complex intermetallic compounds.« less
  2. 57Fe Mössbauer spectra at different temperatures between ~5 and ~300 K were measured on an oriented mosaic of single crystals of CaKFe 4 As 4. The data indicate that is a well formed compound with narrow spectral lines, no traces of other, Fe – containing, secondary phases in the spectra and no static magnetic order. There is no discernible feature at the superconducting transition temperature in any of the hyperfine parameters. The temperature dependence of the quadrupole splitting approximately follows the empirical ‘ T 3/2 law’. Furthermore, the hyperfine parameters of CaKFe 4 As 4 are compared with those formore » measured in this work, and the literature data for CaFe 2 As 2, and were found to be in between those for these two, ordered, 122 compounds, in agreement with the gross view of CaKFe 4 As 4 as a structural analog of KFe 2 As 2 and CaFe 2 As 2 that has alternating Ca- and K-layers in the structure.« less
