Neutron powder diffraction methods with Rietveld analysis are utilized to determine GaN lattice parameters from 15 to 298.1 K. Using these measurements and literature data, we calculated the thermal expansion of gallium nitride (GaN) and predicted its higher temperature thermal expansion. The results are compared with available experimental data and earlier work.
