Bonding-property relationships in intermetallic alloys

A definition for structure of atomic scale systems is introduced which extends the typical crystallographic description to include elements of the total charge density. We argue that the mechanical properties of intermetallic alloys are related to this extended structure. These relationships have their origin in the nature of the charge redistribution accompanying strain. The direction of this charge redistribution is determined solely by the extended structure, while its magnitude can be correlated with a quantification of this extended structure. We demonstrate these facts by determining the extended structure and nature of the charge redistribution resulting from uniaxial strain for two alloys with the L10 structure: CuAu and TiAl. While these alloys share the same crystallographic structure, their extended structures are different, with CuAu possessing the same extended structure as the allotropic fcc metals while TiAl does not. These different extended structures give rise to different charge redistributions, which are argued to be related to the intrinsically ductile behavior of CuAu and the tendency for TiAl to fail transgranularly.
