Many experimental and theoretical studies have been made of the properties of ferrous fluoride (FeF2),1–11 However, no detailed measurements of the thermal expansion of FeF2 below room temperature have been reported. This paper presents the results of such an investigation of the thermal expansion of FeF2 with particular emphasis on its behavior in the vicinity of the Neel temperature.
