Using complementary X-ray and electron-optical methods, a ZnSe(Co) crystal with natural face was investigated. X-ray diffraction methods such as double-crystal X-ray reflection topography, double-crystal diffractometry for rocking curve measurements, precise lattice constant measurements by the Bond technique were used for crystal structure characterization and X-ray fluorescence method for studies of chemical composition along the crystal. The scanning electron microscopic image of the crystal surface and reflection diffraction of the high-energy electrons enriched the crystal structure characterization. It was shown that X-ray characterization and reflection high-energy electron diffraction can be regarded as very important complementary tools for non-destructive investigation of the ZnSe(Co) crystal surface layers.
