The properties of semiconducting compounds are governed primarily by the short-range order, i. e., by the chemical nature of atoms, the geometry of their distribution, and the absolute distances between them. The crystal structure of semiconducting compounds is a very important characteristic of the short-range order and, in the majority of such compounds, it can be deduced from the close packing of anions when the tetrahedral and octahedral vacancies are occupied by cations.
