@article{Coddens2006OnTP, title={On the problem of the relation between phason elasticity and phason dynamics in quasicrystals}, author={G. Coddens}, journal={The European Physical Journal B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems}, year={2006}, volume={54}, pages={37-65} }

Abstract.It has recently been claimed that the dynamics
of long-wavelength phason fluctuations has been observed in
i-AlPdMn quasicrystals [S. Francoual et al.
Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 225501 (2003);
A. Létoublon et al. 54, 753 (2001)]. We will show that
the data reported call for a more detailed development of
the elasticity theory of Jarić and Nelsson [M.V. Jarić and D.R. Nelsson, Phys. Rev. B 37,
4458 (1988)]
in order to determine the nature of small phonon-like atomic displacements
with a… Expand

It is shown that in the i-phase the Fe Lamb-Mössbauer recoilless fraction decreases below that predicted for lattice vibrations alone for temperatures above about 550 K, and locally a Penrose tile description is appropriate, which shows that the detected Fe jumps can be interpreted in terms of phason-like local tiling flips.
