Abstract: Using the large-scale atomic/molecular massively parallel simulator, fraction of the Cu-centered 〈 0,0,12,0 〉 full icosahedra (fico) is obtained from a statistical analysis over a broad compositional range with high resolution in the Cu-Zr binary system. Weak but significant peaks are observed at certain compositions which coincide with good glass formers. This correlation implies that the change in fico is a fundamental structural factor in determining the ease of glass formation. In this regard, fico can be an indicator of glass-forming ability. Our work provides further understanding on the atomic structure of the Cu-Zr system and its effect on glass formation. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
