Abstract [en]

The effect of high energy neutron irradiation and subsequent low temperature annealings of icosahedral AlPdRe has been studied. For an insulating sample, brought into a metallic state by irradiation, the resistivity rho, at 4.2 K was found to increase with increased annealing temperature T-a, while the resistance ratio R=rho(4.2 K)/rho(295 K) increased according to a previously established general relation for as prepared samples. The intensity of X-ray diffraction peaks were found to increase with increasing T-a, thus indicating improved icosahedral order. It is concluded that irradiation and annealing offers a method to reversibly tune a single icosahedral AlPdRe sample over a range of R-values, that R is therefore not sensitive to external impurities, and is a useful parameter to tune the metal-insulator transition.
