Author(s) from Durham


La2O2ZnSe2 adopts an unusual cation-ordered LaCuOS-related structure with both stripe- and checkerboard-ordered regions. Its structure has been determined using the symmetry mode approach. Optical measurements indicate that it is a wide band gap semiconductor, in agreement with electronic structure calculations.
