Abstract

The first-order difference method of neutron diffraction is applied to molten GeSe2 at 784+or-3 degrees C. The results show that Ge correlations contribute to the first sharp diffraction peak of the total structure factor, give a nearest-neighbour distance rGeSe=2.40+or-0. 02 AA and give an average coordination number of 3.7+or-0.2 selenium atoms around a germanium atom.
