Microstrain-assisted polymorphic phase transitions in (La1−xEux)2O3

A structural phase transition from cubic to monoclinic and subsequently to a hexagonal structure is observed with increasing cation size in the rare earth sesquioxide (Eu1−xLax)2O3. The microstrain and substitutional disorder in the crystal structure are considered as the causes of the observed phase transition.

Accepted 27 November 2018

Fabrication and characterization of ZnMgO nanowalls grown on 4H-SiC by molecular beam epitaxy

The crystal quality of ZnMgO nanowalls grown on 4H-SiC substrates has been investigated by X-ray diffraction.

Accepted 26 November 2018

Implementation of software for data processing of X-ray optical measurements for the analysis of structural parameters

A software package for thin-film analysis implemented on the combined basis of two-wavelength X-ray reflectometry, refractometry and diffuse X-ray scattering is proposed.

Accepted 25 November 2018

Scattering functions of carved-ellipsoid-shaped particles

Carved-ellipsoid models are built and their scattering functions are explored. These models are applied successfully to the scattering curves of newly developed nano-scaled molecular clusters.

Accepted 21 November 2018

Polar and non-polar structures of NH4TiOF3

The unambiguous determination of the crystal structure of two NH4TiOF3 polymorphs is provided. NH4TiOF3 is subject to a second-order phase transition from Pca21 to Pma2 on heating at around ∼453 K.

Accepted 19 November 2018

Qu­antitative phase analysis of amorphous components in mixtures by using the direct-derivation method

The direct-derivation method has been applied to the quantitative phase analysis of mixtures containing amorphous components. A theoretical basis has been given to the formula for deriving individual weight fractions from observed intensity data. The formula has been experimentally tested by whole-powder-pattern fitting to the observed patterns of mixtures containing amorphous components.

Mag2Pol: a program for the analysis of spherical neutron polarimetry, flipping ratio and integrated intensity data

Mag2Pol is a graphical user interface program which is devoted to the treatment of data from polarized neutron diffractometers with spherical polarization analysis. A magnetic structure model including magnetic domain populations can be refined in a least-squares fit and can also be correlated with an integrated intensity data set in a joint refinement.
