Laves coordination polyhedra

Frank Stein, head of the group “Intermetallic Materials” at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, and Andreas Leineweber, professor at the Technical University Freiberg, published a review article about Laves phases in the Journal of Materials Science.

The scientists summarize the state of the art knowledge about selected topics focussing on non-ideal Laves phases. Moreover, they give a systematic overview about the role of Laves phases in different materials for functional and structural applications.
