2 Fe-Se phase diagramThe following phases form close to the FeSe stoichiometry:1) tetragonal P4/nmm structure similar to PbO, called β-FeSe (or α-FeSe)2) hexagonal P63/mmc structure similar to NiAs, called δ-FeSe3) hexagonal phase Fe7Se8 with two different kinds of order, i.e., 3c (α-Fe7Se8) or 4c (β-Fe7Se8)A tetragonal P4/nmm phase transforms into Cmma orthorhombic phase at about 90 K,and this phase is superconducting with Tc ≈ 8 K.
3 Crystal structure of -FeSe Aim of this contribution is to answer two questions concerned withtetragonal/orthorhombic FeSe:1) is there electron spin density (magnetic moment) on Fe ?2) is there change of electron density on Fe nucleusduring transition from P4/nmm to Cmma structure ?

15 Hyperfine magnetic field is equal to applied external magnetic field. Mössbauer spectra obtained in external magnetic field aligned with γ-ray beamHyperfine magnetic field is equal to applied external magnetic field.Principal component of the electric field gradient (EFG) on Fe nucleuswas found as negative.
16 Conclusions1. There is no magnetic moment on iron atoms in the superconducting FeSe.2. The electron density on iron nucleus is lowered by 0.02 electron / a.u.3during transition from tetragonal to orthorhombic phase.
