Abstract: A longitudinal component of the modulated structure of thiourea SC(NH2)2 which corresponds to the translational mode transformed under the irreducible representation B3g in D2h has been observed by x-ray diffraction. The parameters including the longitudinal component are examined. The longitudinal component accounts well for the asymmetry of pairs of the satellite intensities (hkl±δ). The phase of the longitudinal wave differs by π/2 from those of the transverse waves of B2u symmetry, which corresponds to the ferroelectric soft mode. The amplitude of the longitudinal wave is as small as 10-1 times those of the transverse waves. A possible interpretation on the longitudinal mode is given by considering the short-range interaction between molecules: It suggests that the longitudinal component, as well as the transverse components, plays an important role in the occurrence of the incommensurate phase of thiourea.
