A Determination of the Parameter for Hauerite


Offner, Franklin Faller (1934) A Determination of the Parameter for Hauerite. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/TKAX-JE95.


In Part I, after a discussion of covalency and covalent radii, a brief review of the work of Bragg on pyrite, and Ewald and Friedrich on pyrite and hauerite, with an evaluation of accuracy, is given. The Laue method for crystal analysis is described, and the theory outlined.

Part II is devoted to the description of a new parameter determination for hauerite carried out by the writer. As a result of this determination, the parameter has been fixed at u = 0.4012 ± 0.0004, giving a covalent sulfur radius of 1.043 Å.
