Fluorescence Corrections in Thin-Film Texture Analysis

D. Chateigner, P. Germi, M. Pernet, P. Fréchard and S. Andrieu

Synopsis: The pole-figure corrections in the case of fluorescent thin-film texture analysis using transmission and reflection techniques are detailed. No use of specific experimental fluorescence suppression is needed, as is proved for thin iron layers deposited on glass substrates.

The Post-Cotunnite Phase in BaCl2, BaBr2 and BaI2 under High Pressure

J. M. Léger, J. Haines and A. Atouf

Synopsis: X-ray powder diffraction patterns have been obtained for BaBr2, BaCl2 and BaI2 as a function of pressure up to 40 GPa. All these cotunnite-structured compounds in ambient conditions transform to a monoclinic P1121/a Z = 8 structure that is at the present time the final structure in the known high-pressure sequence of phase transformations in AX2 compounds.

A Direct Determination of Micelle Structure from Small-Angle X-ray or Neutron Scattering Curves Measured by the Contrast-Variation Method

T. Kawaguchi

Synopsis: Micelle structure, on the basis of the two-shell model with ellipsoidal shape, can be directly analysed by the solution of simultaneous equations concerning the morphological parameters obtained from small-angle X-ray or neutron scattering curves.

High-Temperature Crystallographic Study of Mg-Doped TbAlO3 and YAlO3

J. Ranløv and K. Nielsen

Synopsis: Difference nuclear density maps [Delta][rho], computed as [Delta][rho](low temperature) - [Delta][rho](high temperature) using only observed structure factors, show that thermal vibrations in Mg-doped TbAlO3 and YAlO3 are similar and that the difference density distribution for each atom can be described by zeroth-and second-order spherical harmonics (quadrupolar functions).
