X-ray powder diffraction study of ZnGa2Te4

  • undefined Rashmi (a1) and U. Dhawan (a1)

ZnGa2Te4 was found to crystallize in a defect tetrahedral structure with possible space group I4(82) with Z=2. Complete X-ray powder diffraction data were obtained and the unit cell parameters a and c and X-ray density were calculated. These were a=0.5930(1) nm, c=1.1859(3) nm, and Dx=5.7×103 kg/m3.
