    • Abstract


      The crystal structure of the semiconductor compound CuMn$_2$InSe$_4$ was analysed using X-ray powder diffraction data. CuMn$_2$InSe$_4$ crystallizes, with a stannite structure, in the tetragonal space group I$\bar{4}$2m (No. 121), $Z = 2$, with unit cell parameters $a = 5.8111(2) \AA$, $c = 11.5739(8) \AA$ and $V = 390.84(3) \AA^#$. The refinement of 28 instrumental and structural parameters led to $R_{\rm p} = 8.1$%, $R_{\rm wp} = 10.5$%, $R_{\rm exp} = 6.5$% and $S = 1.6,$ for 86 independent reflections.
