Abstract: Using molecular simulations, we show that the aperiodic growth ofquasicrystals is controlled by the ability of the growing quasicrystal`nucleus- to incorporate kinetically trapped atoms into the solid phase withminimal rearrangement. In the system under investigation, which forms adodecagonal quasicrystal, we show that this process occurs through theassimilation of stable icosahedral clusters by the growing quasicrystal. Ourresults demonstrate how local atomic interactions give rise to the long-rangeaperiodicity of quasicrystals.
