Determination of Lattice Constants of Polycrystalline (Monoclinic) Uranium Tetrafluoride*

  • Peter R. Morris (a1) and Vernon Morton (a1)

Abstract

A technique is described for determining lattice constants of polycrystalline monoclinic materials and partition of observed experimental error among the several constants. The technique is illustrated for uranium tetrafluoride. Precision of the method is typically ±0.01 to ±0.02 Å on the unit cell lengths, and ±4 to ±8 min on the angle between axes. This is of the order expected, were single-crystal techniques limited to the range of Bragg angles available.
