Nmr Studies of Electronic and Local Structure in Cu-Au Alloys Conference Paper uri icon


  • ABSTRACTWe have studied ordered and disordered Cu-Au alloys via 63Cu NMR, probing local electronic structure in the bulk and near anti-phase boundaries in CuAuII. A line-shape model has provided good agreement for disordered and partially ordered alloys, and we thus have obtained a measure of local site symmetries, and Knight shifts and local densities of states within the alloys. We have combined Knight shift and relaxation measurements to obtain detailed local information. We report effects of the ordering process in Cu3Au, CuAu, and CuAu3 intermetallics. We find enhanced susceptibility at the CuAuII anti-phase boundary which is heavily anti-site populated. We compare these results to other measurements of these properties.
