PRINCEPS: A computer-based approach to the structural description and recognition of trends within structural databases, and its application to the Ce-Ni-Si System

Intermetallic crystal structures offer an enormous structural diversity, with an endless array of structural motifs whose connection to stability and physical properties are often mysterious. Making

The Zintl Phases Eu3Mg5Si5 and Eu3Mg5Ge5

The Zintl phases Eu3Mg5Si5 and Eu3Mg5Ge5 were synthesized by high-frequency melting of the elements in sealed tantalum tubes. Both of their structures have been refined from X-ray single crystal

Possible magnetic-polaron-switched positive and negative magnetoresistance in the GdSi single crystals

It is shown that antiferromagnetic GdSi metal displays an anisotropic positive MR value (PMRV), up to ~415%, accompanied by a large negative thermal volume expansion (NTVE), which may open up a new avenue of searching for giant MR materials by suppressing the AFM transition temperature.




Physical and mechanical properties of rare earth alloys and various metals alloyed with rare earths were studied. Phase diagrams were constructed and analytical data are given for Mg- Nd, Mg- Y, Mg-

The crystal structure of ThPt and some related compounds

The crystal structures of several thorium alloys, including ThPt and ThRh, are reported. The alloys were prepared by arc-melting the component metals in a Zrgettered atmosphere. Powders were prepared

Crystal chemical studies of the 5f‐series of elements. VIII. Crystal structure studies of uranium silicides and of CeSi2, NpSi2, and PuSi2

Crystal structures are deduced for the compounds α-USi2, NpSi2, PuSi2, CeSi2, β-USi2, USi, U3Si2 and U3Si. Each silicon atom forms three covalent bonds with other silicon atoms in the disilicides,


The results of x-ray-diffraction studies of the stability ranges of two polymorphic forms of the tetragonal phase in Eu. Pr. Nd. Sm, Cd. Y. and Dy disilicides are given. NdSi/sub /2 appear to be

Gadolinium and dysprosium intermetallic phases. I. The crystal structures of DyGa and GdPt and their related compounds

The intermetallic phnses DyGa, DyGe, GdGa, and GdGe are isostructural with the CrB structure type. The phases GdPt, DyPt, GdNi, and DyNi have structures which are only slight distortions of the FeB

Zur Kenntnis der Strontiumsilicide

Das System SrSi wurde im Sr-reichen Teil naher untersucht und die Existenz der bisher unbekannten Phase Sr2Si sichergestellt. Die Kristallstruktur von SrSi wurde aufgeklart. Die Verbindung ist

Die Kristallstruktur des CaSi

Rontgenographische Untersuchungen an Einkristallen des CaSi ergaben eine rhombische Zelle mit den Gitterkonstanten . Aus der Strukturdiskussion folgt die Raumgruppe mit den

The crystal structure of YSi and Hf5Ge3(C)

Intensity calculations were made for YSi with CrB structure and for Hf/ sub 5/Ge/sub 3/(C) with D8/sub 8/ structure. Results are tabulated. (C.J.G.)
