Transmission electron microscopy observations on a new complex oxybromide with nominal composition Bi(4)Fe(1/3)W(2/3)O(8)Br, heated at high temperature, reveal the transformation of its basic structure yielding two types of crystals. The first crystal type shows ordered and disordered extended defects leading to a new family of intergrowths between one(More)
Single crystals of octa-deca-nickel dodeca-germanide were grown by chemical transport reaction. The inter-metallic compound crystallizes in a superstructure of the hexa-gonal NiAs type (B8 type). All atoms in the asymmetric unit lie on special positions except one Ni atom (two Ni atoms have site symmetry -6.. and another one has site symmetry .2. while the(More)
Single crystals of Cd4As2Br3 (tetra-cadmium biarsenide tri-bromide) were grown by a chemical transport reaction. The structure is isotypic with the members of the cadmium and mercury pnictidohalides family with general formula M 4 A 2 X 3 (M = Cd, Hg; A = P, As, Sb; X = Cl, Br, I) and contains two independent As atoms on special positions with site symmetry(More)
Single crystals of anti-mony-doped germanium, Ge1-x Sb x+0.01 (x ≃ 0.0625), were grown by chemical transport reaction. The alloy crystallizes as a superstructure of diamond-type α-Ge. All atoms in the asymmetric unit lie on special positions and are characterized by strong covalent bonds. The anti-mony atoms substitute for one germanium atom at full(More)
The synthesis and structural characterisation of a new phase with nominal composition Bi4Mn1/3W2/3O8Cl is presented. Conventional and analytical transmission electron microscopy are used to determine the composition, unit-cell symmetry and space group of the compound, whereas a structural model is deducted by exit-wave reconstruction in the transmission(More)
Single crystals of the title compound, octa-iodide deca-anti-monate hexa-tria-conta-germanide, were grown by chemical transport reactions. The structure is isotypic with the analogous clathrates-I. In this structure, the (Ge,Sb)(46) framework consists of statistically occupied Ge and Sb sites that atoms form bonds in a distorted tetra-hedral arrangement.(More)
Microporous flower-like and spherical carbon particles, made of graphene-like layers, have been obtained via chlorination of nickelocene (Ni(C5H5)2). Their mechanism of formation, in terms of morphology and micro-nanostructure, has been followed from 200 to 900°C. Conventional transmission electron microscopy and high-resolution-TEM observations allow(More)
In this work we investigate the microscopic structure and dynamics of the molten equimolar alloy, Se(50)Te(50) using a combination of neutron and x-ray diffraction experiments, reverse Monte Carlo analysis, and first principles molecular dynamics. The range of temperatures studied covers the semiconductor/metal transition. From our results it can be seen(More)
The electronic structure of MgS and MgYb2S4 have been studied using the fine structure of the Mg-K, S-K, Mg-L2,3, S-L2,3 and Yb-N5 edges measured by electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS). Our experimental results are compared with real-space full multiple scattering calculations as incorporated in the FEFF9.6 code. All edges are very well reproduced.(More)
Single crystals of the mercury chalcohalide Hg3-x Sb x (S+Se)2+x I2-x (x ≃ 0.1) (mercury anti-mony sulfide selenide iodide), were grown by a chemical transport reaction. The structure contains three independent A (Hg/Sb) atoms; each atom is strongly covalently bonded with two X (Se/S) atoms to form approximately linear X-A-X units. The X-A-X units link to(More)
