Title: Lattice dynamics of AIH{sub 3} and AID{sub 3} examined by inelastic neutron scattering.

Abstract

Inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectra of trigonal {alpha}-AlH{sub 3} and {alpha}-AlD{sub 3} have been measured in a wide range (5-150 meV) of energy transfers with a much better statistical accuracy than previously using the inverted-geometry NERA-PR spectrometer at JINR, Dubna. The studied energy interval covers the range of low-frequency lattice vibrations and a broad band of optical H vibrations. By using a direct-geometry HRMECS spectrometer at ANL, Argonne, the AlH{sub 3} hydride was also examined by INS at energy transfers up to 315 meV in the regime of small momentum transfers. This significantly enhanced the contribution from the one-phonon neutron scattering and allowed an observation and accurate examination of one more, high-energy band of optical H vibrations predicted theoretically [C. Wolverton et al., Phys. Rev. B 69, 144109 (2004)]. Combining the obtained experimental data, the entire spectrum of phonon density of states was reconstructed for both {alpha}-AlH{sub 3} and {alpha}-AlD{sub 3}.
