Title: Thermal properties of CaMoO{sub 4}: Lattice dynamics and synchrotron powder diffraction studies

Abstract

The structure of calcium molybdate was studied by means of synchrotron based high-resolution powder diffraction methods in the temperature range 12-300 K. The scheelite structure type was confirmed for CaMoO{sub 4} in the temperature region investigated and no structural anomalies were observed. Thermal expansion coefficients extracted from the thermal dependencies of the cell sizes are found to be in good agreement with the predictions from our lattice dynamics calculations that form the background for microscopic interpretation of the experimental data. From the analyses of experimental results and the calculated thermal expansion coefficients, elastic constants, phonon density of states, heat capacities, entropy, and Grueneisen parameters it is concluded that a quasiharmonic lattice dynamics approach provides a good description of these properties for CaMoO{sub 4} at temperatures below 800 K.
