Neodymium-doped Sr-5(PO4)(3)F [neodymium strontium fluoride phosphate, (Nd,Sr)(5)(PO4)(3)F] and neodymium-doped Sr-5(VO4)(3)F [neodymium strontium fluoride vanadate, (Nd,Sr)(5)(VO4)(3)F] crystallize in space group P6(3)/m and are isostructural with calcium fluorophosphate, Ca-5(PO4)(3)F. There are two different Sr sites in Sr-5(XO(4))(3)F, denoted Sr(1) and Sr(2). Using single-crystal X-ray diffraction the two structures were refined to R factors of 2.3 and 2.2%, respectively, showing that Nd is present at both Sr sites in (Sr,Nd)(5)(VO4)(3)F but only at the Sr(2) site in (Sr,Nd)(5)(PO4)(3)F.
