Thermophysical properties of Al72Pd20Mn8 icosahedral quasicrystal melts were measured using the electrostatic levitation (ESL) technique. Viscosity increases substantially with decreasing temperature and increases rapidly just above the melting point. In the solidification process, an under-cooled state and a recalescence were not observed.
