Xie21JMR LavesPhaseCrystalAnalysisLaCA GuenoleThe identification of defects in crystal structures is crucial for the analysis of atomistic simulations. In our new work, we propose a novel approach, combining modified CNA and centro-symetry parameter evaluation, able to identifiy Laves phases and related defects. This Invited Feature Paper Laves phase crystal analysis (LaCA): Atomistic identification of lattice defects in C14 and C15 topologically close-packed phases is now published in the Journal of Materials Research (open-access). I am proud to have contributed to this work from Dr. Zhuocheng (Ray) Xie in collaboration with RWTH Aachen and FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg.
