Laves structures are intermetallic phases that have composition AB2 and are named after Fritz Laves who first described them. The Laves structures are simply spinel (MgAl2O4) structure without the anions O such as Cu2Mg, Al2Ca, Ni2Y and Fe2Gd. There are three different classes: cubic MgCu2, hexagonal MgZn2, and hexagonal MgNi2. Laves phases are especially interesting in the field of modern metallurgy because of their abnormal physical and chemical properties.
