Part of the Physical Chemistry book series (volume 12D)


This chapter provides the lattice constant of Ru3Sn7.

Crystal Structure

Using neutron diffraction at room temperature and at 20 K Chakoumakos et al. [98Cha] have investigated the crystal structure of Ru3Sn7. It is cubic with the

lattice constant a = 0.93720 nm for 20 K and

lattice constant a = 0.93735 nm for 296 K.
