Abstract

The complete X-ray structure determination of Czochralski grown La3Zr0.5Ga5Si0.5O14 single crystals with the Ca3Ga2Ge4O14 structure is performed (sp. gr. P321, a = 8.226(1) Å, c = 5.1374(6) Å, Z = 1, Mo Kα1 radiation, 1920 crystallographically independent reflections, R = 0.0166, Rw = 0.0192). The absolute structure is determined. It is shown that possible transition of some of La atoms (∼1.2%) from the 3e to 6g position may give rise to the formation of structural defects.
