Crystal structure and cation distribution of MnCrInS4 from synchrotron powder diffraction data

View publication


The structure and site-occupancy of the spinel-type MnCrInS4 was determined from powder diffraction data using synchrotron radiation (λ = 0.748Å) and the two-step method (integrated intensities determined by individual profile fittings followed by last-squares refinement). A Rietveld analysis was also done in order to check for the reliability of the method. The site-occupancy formula was [Mn0.75In0.25] [Cr0.5Mn0.12In0.38]2S4. © by R. Oldenbourg Verlag, München 1990
