This chapter provides the crystal structure and lattice parameters of Si2Th.

Crystal Structure

Using X-ray diffractography, Venturini et al. [99Ven] have determined the crystal structure of Si2Th. It has tetragonal structure with the lattice parameters:
$$ \mathrm{a}=\mathrm{b}=0.411\kern0.3em \mathrm{nm}\kern0.3em \mathrm{and}\kern0.3em \mathrm{c}=1.422\kern0.3em \mathrm{nm} $$
