5 April 1983 Applications Of Raman Scattering Spectroscopy To Halide Glasses
Author Affiliations +
Polarized Raman scattering spectroscopy is a useful tool for investigating fundamental vibrational properties, structure and bonding, origins of IR edge absorption, and dispersion of the IR refractive index. In this paper we describe the application of Raman spectroscopy to halide glasses and, in particular, heavy metal fluoride glasses. The spectra of the latter differ substantially from those of simple oxide, halide or chalcogenide glasses and, moreover, display a wide range of vibrational characteristics depending on composition. In combination with infrared spectroscopy, one is able to develop useful guidelines for tailoring glass compositions for specific applications.
