Solids and Materials


CdS multiplings having more than three prisms were developed from the vapor generated from CdS powder by means of the conically converging shock-wave (CCSW) technique utilizing detonation of explosive charge. These multilings are mainly made up of the wurtzite type prisms extending parallel to the 〈111〉 directions of the zinc-blende type octahedral crystallite at the center of the particle. Only a few multilings consist of prisms having the zinc-blende structure. Their morphology and structure are discussed.
