Such hetero-epitactic overlayers are currently used in nanotechnology and understanding their growth mechanism is important for the development of new materials and devices. In comparison with crystals, quasicrystalline surfaces exhibit much larger structural and chemical complexity leading, for example, to unusual frictional, catalytical or optical properties. Deposition of thin films on such substrates can lead to structures that may have typical quasicrystalline properties. Recent experiments have indeed showed 5-fold symmetries in the diffraction pattern of metallic layers adsorbed on quasicrystals. Here we report a real-space investigation of the phase behaviour of a colloidal monolayer interacting with a quasicrystalline decagonal substrate created by interfering five laser beams. We find a pseudomorphic phase that shows both crystalline and quasicrystalline structural properties. It can be described by an archimedean-like tiling consisting of alternating rows of square and triangular tiles. The calculated diffraction pattern of this phase is in agreement with recent observations of copper adsorbed on icosahedral Al(70)Pd(21)Mn(9) surfaces. In addition to establishing a link between archimedean tilings and quasicrystals, our experiments allow us to investigate in real space how single-element monolayers can form commensurate structures on quasicrystalline surfaces.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2008-07-24</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Helden, Laurent</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mikhael, Jules</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Archimedean-like tiling on decagonal quasicrystalline surfaces</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-07-06T12:46:13Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-07-06T12:46:13Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Helden, Laurent</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Roth, Johannes</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
