Abstract:After that we construct a grand-canonical cluster expansion for the hcp Al-Ag and perform ground-state search and Monte Carlo simulations to determine the metastable hcp Ag-Al phase diagram. We predict a new equilibrium hcp AgAl ground state with zero-energy domain boundary defects. From thermodynamic results, we discuss the precipitate structure and composition in Al-rich Al-Ag alloys and explain the experimental TEM data.
