On the microstructure and symmetry of apparently hexagonal BaAl 2 O 4

Larsson, Ann-Kristin; Withers, Raymond; Perez-Mato, J M; Fitz Gerald, John; Saines, Paul J.; Kennedy, Brendan James; Liu, Yun


The P63 (a=2ap, b=2bp, c=cp) crystal structure reported for BaAl2O4 at room temperature has been carefully re-investigated by a combined transmission electron microscopy and neutron powder diffraction study. It is shown that the poor fit of this P63 (a=2ap, b=2bp, c=cp) structure model for BaAl2O4 to neutron powder diffraction data is primarily due to the failure to take into account coherent scattering between different domains related by enantiomorphic twinning of the P6322 parent...[Show more]
