Abstract

The three partial structural functions of molten AgBr have been determined by using a combination of the anomalous X-ray scattering (AXS) data and conventional neutron diffraction result. This data processing includes the help of the reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) simulation technique. The partial structure factor of αAgAg(Q) in molten AgBr was rather broad than that found in molten alkali halides such as RbBr. The resultant structural parameters suggest that the structure of molten AgBr is quite likely described by disordered close packing of Br ions where Ag ions are distributed in both octahedral and tetrahedral holes.
