Local atomic structure around Ge atoms in Ge1-xMnxTe thin film single crystal has been investigated by X-ray fluorescence holography (XFH) at room temperature. Obtained atomic image suggests that the Ge position is not stable at the exact positions of fcc cation sublattice, and reveal the uctuations of Ge positions and/or the existence of cation vacancies.
