© 2016 Acta Materialia Inc. A grain boundary (GB) “phase” (complexion) diagram is computed via a lattice type statistical thermodynamic model for the average general GBs in Bi-doped Ni. The predictions are calibrated with previously-reported density functional theory calculations and further validated by experiments, including both new and old aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy characterization results as well as prior Auger electron spectroscopy measurements. This work supports a major scientific goal of developing GB complexion diagrams as an extension to bulk phase diagrams and a useful materials science tool.
