Electron Poor Materials Research Group EPM RG Updates of Experiments in Augsburg --- Crystallographic study of SiB 3, ZnSb… --- Synthetic attempts for B --- Property measurements of (ZnSnSb 2 ) 1-x (InSb) 2x

2
Charge Density Study by the Analysis of High Resolution Diffraction Data Bruker AXS diffractometer with Imus micro-focus X-Ray Source Ag-radiation, the same sin at much lower angle Enough data redundancy for good statistics

Multipole Refinement of ZnSb in Jana 2006 Diffraction data were collected at 100K with 2 up to 120 o Extinction and anharmonicity were refined before starting the multipole refinement d electrons of Zn were considered as valence electrons Multipole refinment was stopped at 2 nd order (quadruple) R=1.38% and highest peak of 0.34 e/Å 3

Total Laplacian +/- 8, 4, 2 * 10^n and n is +/- 3, 2, 1.
