A comparative study of the unit cell parameters a and c, and volume V of the chalcopyrite-related of In- and Ga-rich ordered defect compounds of the ternary systems Cu-In-Se, Cu-In-Te, Cu-Ga-Se, and Cu-Ga-Te is presented. It is observed that these parameters decrease in the sequence 1:1:2→3:5:9→5:9:16→2:4:7→1:3:5→1:5:8. This behavior is attributed to the presence of arrays of ordered defects in the crystal lattice of these compounds. It is also found that values of a, c, and V in these systems vary linearly with the fraction m of [2 V[sub Cu][sup -1]+(In,Ga)[sub Cu][sup +2]] defect pair for each unit of Cu(In,Ga)(Se[sub 2],Te[sub 2]). © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
