ABSTRACT
Coherent phonons excited in a CdTe(111) crystal by 70 fs laser irradiation have been investigated by femtosecond time-resolved x-ray diffraction. The longitudinal optical phonon with a frequency of approximately 5 THz near the Brillouin zone center has been detected as modulation in intensities of x-ray diffraction. Atomic displacement in the [111] direction in the coherent longitudinal optical phonon has been estimated.

    Ab initio evolutionary algorithm was employed to resolve the crystal structure of the observed superhard BC2N. We uncovered two polymorphs with rhombohedral (2 f.u./cell) and orthorhombic (2 f.u./cell) symmetries, with which the experimental x-ray diffraction pattern is well reproduced. Analysis...

    Results of first-principles simulations on both orthorhombic and monoclinic phases of CaFeO3 crystal are presented. The obtained atomic structures are consistent with x-ray diffraction data. The transition from a metallic orthorhombic to a narrow-gap semiconducting monoclinic phase is ascribed...

    A strong effect of virtual scattering has been experimentally observed when studying the nearly coplanar three-beam (220, 371) X-ray diffraction in a paratellurite single crystal under high-resolution double-crystal X-ray diffraction using Mo Kα1 radiation. One characteristic feature of this...
