We report thermal expansion measurements on URu2Si2 by high-resolution X-ray diffraction done with a relative longitudinal resolution of 3 × 10-6. Besides the abnormal thermal expansion, no lattice distortion indicating a transition into another space group was observed, i.e. the crystal remains tetragonal down to 3 K.
