The lattice parameters of CsBr at eight different temperatures from room temperature to 78.2 °K were measured and the true lattice parameters were obtained by the least squares method using the Nelson-Riley extrapolation function. Using these parameters the thermal expansion coefficients of CsBr were estimated at each temperature by fitting them into a cubic polynomial involving temperatureT. Theα T thus obtained were compared with the values of earlier workers who used an interferometric technique and the agreement was found to be good.
