Neutron diffraction measurements have been performed for liquid germanium over a wide temperature range from 1000°C to 1550°C. The structure factor of liquid germanium just above the melting point has a pronounced shoulder in the high momentum transfer region of the first peak, as also by our data confirmed. With increasing temperature, the position of the first peak moves slightly to a high value of Q and the shoulder becomes inconspicuous.
