Abstract

IT has been pointed out1 that there is a correlation between magnetic and structure transition temperatures for certain antiferromagnetic materials. In the case of Cr2O3, with a Curie temperature of approximately 314° K., it was reported that the 42̄2 reflexion was resolved into a doublet below the Curie temperature. This communication presents additional information concerning the nature of the structure change responsible for the doublet formation mentioned above.
