Abstract
Phase transitions in CsPbCl3 have been investigated on a single crystal by X-ray precision method at temperatures ranging from 340 to 90 K. On cooling from room temperature, it was found that abrupt intensity increases of superlattice reflections, X; (0,k,1+1/2)c and r;)h+1/2,k+1/2,1+1/2)c in the cubic Brilloun zone, were observed at about 265 K and 200 K, respectively. At 200 K, although accompanied with conspicuous splitting of the hkl Bragg spots along [010]c* direction of the cubic reciprocal lattice, weak spots are still observed without splitting. These observations suggest that the crystal undergoes from the room temperature phase to an intermediate low-temperature phase beginning at 265 K and further transforms at 200 K, successively. Coexistence of a tetragonal and a nonoclinic forms is recognized in the lowest temperature phase below 200 K. The results suggest that a new transition series, 320-265-200 K, starting from the multi-step transition at 320 K exists.
