Microstructure of MnF2 subjected to by shock compression at 4.4 GPa was examined using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Lamellar structure consisting of twin-related domains of rutile-structure and intergrowth of α- PbO2-type phase is observed in the electron diffraction pattern and TEM images. The crystallographic relationship between rutile and α- PbO2-type phases can be expressed as (over(1, ̄) 01)rutile ∥ (001)α -PbO2 and [111]rutile ∥ [110]α -PbO2.
