Title: Disorder effects on the Raman line shape in ZrO{sub 2}

Abstract

Experimental data obtained by Lughi and Clarke are compared to the theory describing disorder effects on optical phonons. Sharpening and vanishing of the asymmetry of the Raman lines after annealing are attributed to a decrease in short-range disorder. The parameters of disorder (such as the phonon-defect coupling and the correlation length) are defined in the comparison.

  • This paper discusses the shape of the phonon Raman lines and its dependence on scattering configuration for T1-based superconductors. The asymmetry of phonon lines and their polarization dependence can be accounted for by the participating of phonons with finite wave vector in light scattering. The reasons for violation of the wave vector conservation law have been discussed and the asymmetry value due to this factor for the fully-symmetrical phonons in high-T{sub c} superconductors has been estimated.
  • We present line-shape analyses of magnon Raman spectra in {ital B}{sub 1{ital g}} geometry of a PrBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 2.7}Al{sub 0.3}O{sub 7} crystal for various excitation energies. The description is based on the Heisenberg model of antiferromagnetism. Out of resonance, we describe the experimental data by taking into account phonons and a two-magnon excitation using the experimental superexchange energy {ital J}=720cm{sup {minus}1} and a damping parameter {Gamma}=200cm{sup {minus}1} of the one-magnon states. After subtraction of the fitted line shapes, we identify three additional spectral features at 730 cm{sup {minus}1}, 1170 cm{sup {minus}1}, and 3500 cm{sup {minus}1}. All three show enhanced intensitiesmore » close to the two-magnon resonance at 2.79 eV excitation energy. This strongly suggests that these excitations have a magnetic rather than a phononic origin. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • In order to understand the influence of H{sub 2}O on the stimulated Raman {ital Q}-branch spectra of nitrogen in combusting media, an exhaustive theoretical and experimental study has been carried out. Starting from a semiclassical model, particularly convenient at high temperature, the {ital Q}-line broadening and shifting coefficients have been calculated over a wide temperature range and for a large number of lines. Stimulated Raman Spectra (SRS) measurements have allowed us to test these calculated line broadening coefficients and thus establish the high accuracy of semiclassical values. The theoretical broadening coefficients have been inverted to deduce state-to-state rotational relaxation ratesmore » by using two types of fitting laws. A partial test of the resulting {ital Q}-branch profiles has been realized at moderate pressures leading to a discrimination between these two laws. Furthermore, the effect of rotational energy transfers on collisionally narrowed profiles at higher densities has been simulated and compared with the pure N{sub 2} case.« less
  • Nanophase ([ital n]-) ZrO[sub 2] was produced in its pure and partially stabilized form by the gas-phase condensation method. The material was examined by x-ray diffraction and Raman scattering to obtain information on the structural evolution of the material during sintering. Two types of Y[sub 2]O[sub 3]-doped ZrO[sub 2] nanophase materials were made in one by co-deposition of [ital n]-Y[sub 2]O[sub 3] and [ital n]-ZrO[sub 2] in a consecutive manner and the second by mechanically mixing [ital n]-Y[sub 2]O[sub 3] and [ital n]-ZrO[sub 2]. We have determined that the co-deposition process is the most effective means of doping the [italmore » n]-ZrO[sub 2].« less
  • The densification behavior and microstructure development of ZnO matrices containing rigid ZrO{sub 2} inclusions were studied, with special emphasis on the effect of inclusion shape and size. The inclusions retarded the densification of the matrix, regardless of the inclusion shape and size. For large inclusions with diameter of > 10 {micro}m, dense regions developed between inclusion particles. The inclusion particles and dense regions formed a continuous network, which constrained the densification of the composites. The inclusion shape had a small effect on the development of dense regions. Severe retardation in densification was observed for compacts containing inclusions with diameters ofmore » < 10 {micro}m. In these cases, dense regions between inclusion particles did not develop. The formation of the continuous network cannot be applicable to small inclusions as an origin of retardation of densification.« less
