Single grains of real quasicrystals have been investigated using X-ray imaging techniques at a third-generation synchrotron radiation source (ESRF). Facetted microholes have been observed. The experimental results are discussed with reference to a description of the quasicrystal structure in terms of overlapping atomic clusters (self-similar packing or random covering modifications). Relations between holes and quasicrystal formation are also discussed.
