A powder X-ray diffraction study has been carried out in the temperature range from 8.9 to 289.4 K in order to clarify the temperature dependence of the lattice constant and the lattice vibrations of Rb3C60 crystals. A large increase in vibrational displacements of C atoms in Rb3C60 has been found around 50 K. The phenomenon is of interest in relation to the superconducting transition.
