On the cation distribution in the spinel systemyMg2TiO4−(1−y)MgFe2O4


The cation distribution and the oxygen parameter for the system Mg1+y Fe2(1−y) Ti y O4 have been determined using the intensities of X-ray reflections. Results are given for slowly cooled and quanched samples. An explanation is proposed to account for the behaviour of the lattice parameter and the oxygen parameter.
