How predicted surface energies relate to the ordering and segregation properties of Au-Pd clusters

Why is it important?

We show in the detail that modifying the surface energies of Au and Pd by up to 50 percent and, their surface energy difference by about 35 percent is of no major importance for the ordering and segregation properties of nanostructured Au-Pd alloy surfaces.
