The anomalous dispersion of X-rays by single crystal ZnSe

  • K. F. Burr
  • J. Woods


An X-ray photographic method is described which allows the (111) and (¯1¯1¯1) faces of a suitably prepared slice of a single crystal of ZnSe to be distinguished. Etching in hot concentrated HCl produces triangular pits on the (111), zinc face, but merely roughens the (¯1¯1¯1) selenium face.
