  • This is the $\gamma$ phase of the Mg–Ni–Sn ternary system. The (2b), (4d) and (8e) Wyckoff positions are partially occupied and are represented by the labels M I, M II, and M III, respectively. Here, M I is 0.88Mg+0.12Ni, M II is 0.88Sn+0.12Mg, and M III is 0.95Mg+0.05Ni. The Jmol image does not distinguish between the different M labels and is represented by the "Xx" atoms.

Simple Tetragonal primitive vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccc} \mathbf{a}_1 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} \\ \mathbf{a}_2 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_3 & = & c \, \mathbf{\hat{z}} \\ \end{array} \]
