Cation disordering by rapid crystal growth in olivine-phosphate nanocrystals.


On the basis of Pauling's first rule for ionic bonding, the coordination number of cations with oxygen anions can be determined by comparison of their relative ionic size ratio. In contrast to simple oxides, various site occupancies by multicomponent cations with similar sizes usually occur in complex oxides, resulting in distinct physical properties… (More)
