Abstract

The structure of the alkaline-earth fulleride Ca3.01C60 is refined using maximum entropy data analysis of synchrotron powder diffraction data. Despite the size and complexity of the structural problem, the fulleride anion orientations and the details of multiple occupancy of the octahedral interstitial sites in the fcc anion array are determined. The power of the maximum entropy technique in solving underdetermined problems in powder crystallography is thus demonstrated.
