Abstract

The anion and cation deficient phase Bi0.95 In0.05 O1.5 (Bi1.9 In0.1 O3) was synthesized and experimentally investigated using X-ray diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy (Infrared and Raman). The non-stoichiometric phases are similar to sillenite family type γBi2O3 and crystallize in the I23 space group. The crystal structure was determined by full profile Rietveld analysis of the powder diffractogram. It is formed by a sequence of BiO5E polyhedra (E lone pair of bismuth) and MO4 polyhedra (M = In, Mg). The set of MO4 polyhedra are localized in cavities generated by BiO5E polyhedra. The vibrational spectroscopic study revealed the existence of three regions; low, intermediate and high-frequency region. They are attributed to Bi-O stretching mode, In / Mg-O vibrations and cationic displacements respectively.
