Lattice parameters for aluminium nitride were determined using X-ray powder diffraction at a synchrotron radiation source (beamline B2, Hasylab/DESY, Hamburg) in the temperature range from 10 K to 291 K. The measurements were carried out using the Debye-Scherrer geometry. The relative change of both, a and c, on rising the temperature in the studied range (10-291 K) is about 0.03%. The results are compared with earlier laboratory data and theoretical predictions.
