Molecular relaxation processes in the solid binary systems NaNO3–NaClO4, Na2CO3–Na2SO4, and NaNO3–NaNO2 have been studied by Raman spectroscopy. It has been shown that the relaxation time of the ν1(A) vibrational mode of the NO 3 - and CO 3 2- anions in the binary systems is shorter than that in individual (nitrate or carbonate) crystals. The increase in the relaxation rate can be accounted for by an additional mechanism for the relaxation of excited vibrational states of the anions in the binary systems. The mechanism involves the excitation of vibrations in a different anion (ClO 4 - , SO 4 2- or NO 2 - ) and the “generation” of a lattice phonon. This relaxation mechanism is possible when the difference in frequency between the vibrational modes involved corresponds to a region with a sufficiently high density of states in the phonon spectrum.
