Abstract

We have observed several (11l) diffraction peaks in Langmuir-Blodgett films of lead myristate, lead stearate and lead behenate. We find that all three types of films appear to have the same in-plane structure, and that alternate planes of lead ions are shifted laterally by half of an in-plane lattice spacing (as in the structure proposed earlier for bulk lead stearate).
