Abstract

We report our first results on the electronic structure of icosahedral Zn55Mg35Y10 as compared to hexagonal Zn65Mg28Y7 and to the conventional Zn2Mg alloy. The occupied Mg 3s,d, and Mg 3p on the one hand and empty Mg p, Zn d-s and Y d-s states on the other hand have been investigated using soft X-ray emission and photoabsorption spectroscopy, respectively. The various sub-bands presented for Mg are adjusted in the binding energy scale whereas for the other elements they are plotted in the X-ray transition energy scale. We observe that the metallic character of the samples progressively decreases when going from the pure metals to the icosahedral compound.
