Example: derivation of rotation parts from the symbol and modulation vector

3+2 dimensional structure

Space group P-42m

q1 = (α, α,0), q2 = (-α, α,0)

No systematic extinctions

General symmetry element:

From the basic symmetry as determined from main reflections

Internal space cannot be mixed up with external one

Form the metric properties (unitary conditions) →

The only new information is the intrinsic part of the 4th component of the translation vector which, analogically to 3d symmetry, affects systematic extinctions of reflections (here satellites). It expressed how the modulation wave is shifted the internal space.

Superspace group symbol:

Translation components

Jana2006 can automatically determine the 3d space group and centering in four dimensions. Test for the superspace symmetry is made just for (3+1) dimensional case.

Symmetry in Melilite

Natural melilite from San Venanzo, Umbria, Italy

Formula: (Ca1.89Sr0.01Na0.08K0.02)(Mg0.92Al0.08)(Si1.98Al0.02)O7

Superspace group: P-421m(αα0, α-α0) + translation part

Cell parameters: a=7.860 (1), c=5.024 (1) Å

q vectors : 0.2815(3)(a*+b*) , 0.2815(3)(-a*+b*)

l=1

Symmetry in SBN

Formula: Sr0.61Ba0.39Nb2O6

Superspace group: P4bm(αα½, α-α½) + translation part

Cell parameters: a=12.4815 (9), c=3.9428 (6) Å

q vectors : q1=(α,α,½), q2=(α,-α,½), α=0.3075(6)

Cell parameters: a=12.482, c=3.943 Å

P4bm(αα½, α-α½)

The rational part of q-vector must be removed by doubling c.

Transformation matrix

on indices (row):

Resulting indices: (h, k, 2l+m+n, m, n)

New super space group: X4bm(αα0, α-α0)

Centring: (0,0,0,1/2,1/2,1/2)

Twinning can reduce dimension

Hexagonal cell

q1=(2/3 1/3 0)

q2=(-1/3 2/3 0)

(3+2)dimensional structure or a twin.

Overlaps in Melilite

Superspace group: P-421m(αα0, α-α0) + translation part

The sample from Museo di Storia Naturale, Sezione di Mineralogia e Litologia, Universita` di Firenze, Italy, catalogue number 44362/G originates from the sanbornite deposits of eastern Fresno County, California. Fresnoite, Ba2TiSi2O8, is structurally related to the melilite group minerals.

Composition from electron microprobe: (Ba1.962Ca0.038) =Ba 2.000Ti1.000Si2.000O8.000

Where are combined satellites?

Here we only see lambda/2 reflections

Jana indexing tool

We see both combined satellites and lambda/2 reflections
