From crystal to crystal comparison, thed220 lattice spacing in PERFX and WASO silicon crystals used in the only two existing absolute measurements have been found to be equal within ±2×10−7d220. This demonstrates that generic variabilities of the two crystals account only for a small part of the 1.8×10−6d220 difference in the two absolute measurements. In a new series of 336 single measurements, ourd220 value reported recently has been confirmed within ±2×10−8d220. From these results we derive… 

Silicon lattice parameters as an absolute scale of length for high precision measurements of fundamental constants

Precise lattice spacing measurements are carried out with an X-ray double-source, double-crystal transmission technique in order to investigate the lattice distortions in silicon crystals containing

The Lattice Parameter of Silicon: A Survey

Highly purified silicon single crystals are excellent standards for length measurements at the atomic scale and the value of the silicon (220) lattice spacing is an important item of information for

Comparison of lattice parameters obtained from an internal silicon monocrystal standard

The lattice parameter of a highly perfect monocrystalline silicon sample is measured in six laboratories using three different diffraction methods. The quality of the measurements and of the applied

Lattice distortions induced by carbon in silicon

Abstract X-ray double-crystal diffractometry has been used to investigate the lattice distortions in silicon crystals containing carbon impurities. Precise lattice-spacing measurements have been

Determination of silicon unit cell parameters by precision measurements of Bragg plane spacings

AbstractFrom the Bragg spacings of a whole set {hkl} of equivalent lattice plances related by symmetry, the axial lengths, axial angles and the volume of the unit cell of a highly pure silicon

The Avogadro constant — Recent results on the molar volume of silicon

The density p of two silicon crystals has been determined by precision hydrostatic weighing, based on very accurate solid density standards (SDS's). Densities of additional crystals were gained from

X‐Ray Electron Charge Density Distribution in Silicon

During the last two years new highly accurate X-ray structure amplitudes for silicon are published. Also the scattering phases of some „forbidden” reflections are determined using the X-ray threebeam

The (220) lattice spacing of silicon

Further details are given of an experiment based on combined X-ray and optical interferometry to measure the (220) lattice spacing of silicon. A resolution of 5/spl times/10/sup -9/ d/sub 220/ was

Progress in the measurement of lattice spacing d(220) of silicon

X-ray and optical interferometry is applied to the measurement of silicon lattice spacing. The previously reported standard deviation 0.16/spl times/10/sup -6/ has been reduced to 0.05/spl



X-ray measurement of minute lattice strain in perfect silicon crystals

The residual strain still present in nearly perfect silicon single crystals has been measured quantitatively by using double crystal topography at high reflexion orders. High quality float zone

The precision of relative lattice parameter determinations by X-ray Bragg reflexion is usually limited to a few parts in 107 by the dispersed profiles of single spectral lines. In a new technique

Effect of Carbon on the Lattice Parameter of Silicon

A correlation between the lattice parameter and the carbon concentration in otherwise pure samples of silicon has been observed. Carbon content has been determined by mass spectrometry, infrared, and

Absolute Measurement of the (220) Lattice Plane Spacing in a Silicon Crystal

The (220) lattice plane spacing of an almost perfect crystal of silicon was measured by means of a combined scanning ($\mathrm{LLL}$) x-ray interferometer and a two-beam optical interferometer. From
