Abstract: A new embedded-atom potential has been developed for Ni3Al by fitting to experimental and first-principles data. The potential describes lattice properties of Ni3Al, point defects, planar faults, as well as the γ and γ′ fields on the Ni–Al phase diagram. The potential is applied to calculate the energies of coherent Ni/Ni3Al interphase boundaries with three different crystallographic orientations. Depending on the orientation, the interface energy varies between 12 and 46 mJ/m2. Coherent γ/γ′ interfaces existing at high temperatures are shown to be more diffuse and are likely to have a lower energy than Ni/Ni3Al interfaces.

Notes: This conversion was produced by Chandler Becker on 7 Jan 2009 from the plt files listed above. This version is compatible with LAMMPS. Validation and usage information can be found in NiAl04_releaseNotes_2.pdf. If you use this setfl file, please include the following citation (in addition to the Mishin reference): C.A. Becker, et al. (2011) Philos Mag 91(27) 3578-3597. UPDATE 14 Dec 2020: This version is noted as having non-zero energies for the isolated atoms. Because of this, the potential energies computed for bulk structures are correct, but they do not correspond to cohesive energies. An updated version is listed below.

LAMMPS pair_style eam/alloy (2004--Mishin-Y--Ni-Al--LAMMPS--ipr2)
See Computed Properties
Notes: This file was created by Lucas Hale and posted 12 Dec 2020 with the permission of Yuri Mishin. The tables in this file were obtained by using cubic spline interpolations of the plt files listed above. This version differs from the last LAMMPS version in that it explicitly sets F(rho=0) = 0 so that isolated atoms have an energy of 0.0. The two LAMMPS versions behave nearly identically except at very small r and at r near the cutoff. See "Version 2 notes.pdf" for a more detailed comparison of the two versions.
