The transformation of 2D honeycombs into dodecagonal quasicrystals — •Stefan Förster, Loi Vinh Tran, Martin Haller, Sebastian Schenk, and Wolf Widdra — Institute of Physics, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, 06120 Halle, Germany

Oxide quasicrystals are 2D materials with an aperiodic dodecagonal symmetry [1]. Starting from a binary oxide Ti2O3 honeycomb structure on Pt(111), the TinOn ring structure with n=6 is transformed into a network of rings with ring sizes of n= 4, 5, 7 and 10 in the presence of Ba atoms. In these networks, n=7 rings host one Ba atom and n=10 rings host two [23].

In this contribution, the basic mechanisms for the network transformation are discussed. Stone-Wales transformations are the key mechanism to realize n=4...7 rings. In addition, by incorporating an additional oxygen atom, two neighboring n=6 rings convert into a n=10 ring [3]. The amount of Ba controls this conversion process and leads to a sequence of long-range ordered structures including a well-defined quasicrystal.
