Deformed lattice states in a Zn0.9V0.1Se cubic crystal


Neutron scattering patterns have been recorded for a bulk Zn0.9V0.1Se cubic crystal at room temperature; they are indicative of macroscopic deformation in the material and its significant inhomogeneity. Specific features of the previously found state, preceding the fcc ↔ hcp structural transformation of the sphalerite lattice upon strong destabilization induced by vanadium ions in the doped ZnSe matrix, are discussed taking into account the data obtained.
