ABSTRACT

Taking AuCu-sublattice system as an example, we present two discoveries and a method. First, the alloy gene sequences are the central characteristic atom sequences in the basic coordination cluster sequences. Second, the transmission mode of the information about structures and properties of the alloy genes is described by the alloy gene Gibbs energy partition function. The most valuable method in the system sciences is “the whole obtained from a few parts”. We have established the alloy gene database and holographic alloy positioning system of the Au-Cu system, as well as alloy gene Gibbs energy partition function and equilibrium holographic network phase diagrams of the AuCu-type sublattice system. It means that a standard way for researchers to share predictive algorithms and computational methods may be produced during designing advanced alloys.
