Abstract

The 131/2a0 x 131/2a0 superstructure of 1T-TaSe2 at room temperature has been studied by singel-crystal X-ray diffraction. The basic structure has symmetry P3̅m1 with a0 = 3.4733 Å and c0 = 6.2715 Å. The superstructure has a pseudo hexagonal lattice, but it is triclinic with a 169-fold, 131/2a0 x 131/2a0 x 13c0 hexagonal supercell with 13 centering vectors. Structure refinements have been performed using space group P1̅ and the primitive unit cell with a basal plane 131/2a0 x 131/2a0 supercell, and with C = 2a0 + c0. Refinements converged to RF = 0.086 for 2327 observed reflections. Hexagram shaped clusters of 13 Ta atoms are the principle feature of this 13-fold superstructure, in accordance with the study of Brouwer and Jellinek (Physica B 99 (1980) 51). In the present refinement, significant deviations are found from local 6/m symmetry as it was assumed by Brouwer and Jellinek. The relative phase of the superstructure on neighbouring layers represents the most favourable packing of the buckled planes of Se atoms, and elastic coupling between Se atoms of consecutive layers is identified as the driving force for the observed inter-layer shift vector 2a0. The small deviations from trigonal symmetry of the clusters are responsible for the observation of an ordered superstructure, as it is opposed to a stacking of layers according a random selection of shift vectors (2a0, 2a0 + b0, and -a0 - 3b0) that are equivalent by the trigonal symmetry of the basic structure.
