Abstract Neutron diffraction and EXAFS measurements have been carried out on molten Ag(Cl 1− x I x ) to investigate the local structure of these mixtures. From the observed structure factors by neutron diffraction for all concentrations, the characteristic prepeak can be observed in the smaller Q regions, which we suggest indicates a kind of cluster formation of halogen ions around a central cation. From EXAFS results, at eutectic composition, the partial coordination numbers of Cl ions around… CONTINUE READING
