Alloy nanoparticles (also known as nanoalloys) are multicomponent metallic particles in the 1-100 nm diameter range. Nanoalloys present very complex structures and properties, which crucially depend on their size, composition and chemical ordering, and which can therefore be tailored for specific and industrially relevant applications - as in data storage, optical devices and catalysis. Controlling and tailoring the properties of nanoalloys depends on the knowledge of phase diagrams, and their determination require concerted effort of experiment and computer modelling.
