    • Abstract


      The lattice parameters of the compound copper indium disulphide (CuInS2) have been measured by x-ray diffraction. The data have been used to evaluate the coefficients of thermal expansion, perpendicular and parallel to the principal axis. The thermal expansion studies revealed the anisotropy between the axial expansion coefficients having a larger coefficient of expansion alonga axis than that alongc axis. The anisotropic thermal expansion of this compound is interpreted in terms of the thermal expansion of the Cu-S and In-S bonds.
