Tennantite: Multi-temperature crystal structure, phase transition, and electronic structure of synthetic Cu12As4S13

The structure of synthetic tennantite Cu12As4S13 has been investigated at various temperatures in the 90 – 293 K range. Refinements showed significant disorder at high temperatures for the triangular coordinated copper atoms and fixed atomic positions at low temperatures. One particle potential has been used to distinguish the type of disorder at copper sites.

Methods for orientation and phase identification of nano-sized embedded secondary phase particles by 4D scanning precession electron diffraction

Numerical approaches have been developed to extract more than the dominant signal from stacks of scanning precession electron diffraction patterns. Nano precipitates embedded in iron or Al based matrix have been properly identified with these technics

Daliranite, PbHgAs2S5: determination of the incommensurately modulated structure and revision of the chemical formula

The modulated crystal structure of the mineral daliranite has been determined using 3D electron diffraction on nanocrystalline domains.

Accepted 15 May 2019

Solvatochromism and mechanochromism observed in a tri­phenyl­amine derivative

Multi-fluorescent properties of a tri­phenyl­amine derivative are investigated under different conditions.

Accepted 10 May 2019

Towards qu­antitative treatment of electron pair distribution function

A review on electron pair distribution function (ePDF) analysis is presented. A quantitative treatment of ePDF is demonstrated for a nanocrystalline anatase sample.

Accepted 10 May 2019

Automated electron diffraction tomography – development and applications

Electron Diffraction Tomography (EDT), a potential method for structure analysis of nanocrystals, and, in more detail, the strategies to use Automated Diffraction Tomography (ADT) technique are described. Examples of ADT application are discussed according to the material class.

Accepted 10 May 2019

Scanning transmission electron diffraction methods

Methods and applications for crystallographic mapping using scanning electron diffraction in the transmission electron microscope are reviewed.

Accepted 3 May 2019

The incommensurately modulated structures of volcanic plagioclase: displacement, ordering and phase transition

The metastable incommensurate structure of basaltic plagioclase phenocryst varies with the composition and cooling rate of the host rock, which may enable scientists to quantitatively study the thermal history of volcanic rocks in new ways.

Accepted 27 April 2019
