Chapter 5.3. Quantitative texture analysis and combined analysis

The International Tables for Crystallography Volume H (powder diffraction) just issued. Inside it, Chapter 5.3 on "Quantitative Texture Analysis and Combined Analysis" are co-authored by two CRISMAT (D. Chateigner, and L. Lutterotti during his Chair of Excellence at CRISMAT), and one CIMAP researchers (M. Morales).
The hardprint volume will be acquired asap. The pdf is accessible for a short period at

Interface-based tuning of Rashba spin-orbit interaction in asymmetric oxide heterostructures with 3d electrons

In this work, we devise asymmetric oxide heterostructures of LaAlO3//SrTiO3/ LaAlO3 (LAO//STO/LAO) to study the Rashba effect in STO with an initial centrosymmetric structure, and broken inversion symmetry is created by the inequivalent bottom and top interfaces due to their opposite polar discontinuities. Furthermore, we report the observation of a transition from the cubic Rashba effect to the coexistence of linear and cubic Rashba effects in the oxide heterostructures, which is controlled by the filling of Ti orbitals. Such asymmetric oxide heterostructures with initially centrosymmetric materials provide a general strategy for tuning the Rashba SOI in artificial quantum materials.

Stacking sequence variations in vaterite resolved by precession electron diffraction tomography using a unified superspace model

Vaterite : a 60-years long conundrum resolved using electron tomography. Vaterite, the least stable crystalline polymorph of CaCO3, is involved in the first step of crystallization of several carbonate-forming systems including the two stable polymorphs calcite and aragonite. Its complete structural determination consequently sheds important light to understand scaling formation and biomineralization processes. While vaterite’s hexagonal structure approximant was determined by Kamhi 60 years ago, no model up to now was able to satisfactorily account for all the signatures visible in the diffraction patterns. Using electron diffraction tomography at the single crystal scale, such diffraction signatures could be interpreted using periodic and aperiodic modulated structures, depending on temperature, resolving one of the longest structural enigma.
