Raman scattering, layered crystal, phase transition


The unpolarized Raman spectra of TlIn(S0.95Se0.05)2 single crystals in the frequency interval 16–340 cm−1 are studied in the temperature interval 30 ≤ T ≤ 293 K. The Raman spectra are analyzed by a multipeak simulation using Lorentzian contours. The temperature behavior of the vibrational band parameters (half-width, intensity, and frequency) is studied with the emphasis on the temperature range, where changes related to phase transformations are revealed.
