Interferometry: Experimental Techniques and Applications to Inorganic Structures

  • G. W. Chantry

Abstract

The principles underlying the assignment of vibrational frequencies in small molecules have been discussed and illustrated in Chapter 3. Until relatively recently, experimental difficulties have prevented the determination of all the information which is, in principle, available from infrared and Raman spectra. In Raman spectroscopy the main restriction has been on the states of matter that could be studied; using the mercury arc as a source, only solutions, liquids and powdered solids could be easily dealt with. In infrared spectroscopy the principal restriction has been on the frequency range that could be investigated ; with conventional spectrometers the lower limit has been around 200 cm-1. Chapter 5 deals with recent work on the Raman spectroscopy of single crystals and vapours using laser excitation and illustrates the new information that can be obtained. The present chapter describes the experimental determination of low-lying infrared frequencies using interferometric techniques and discusses the contributions such observations have made to the understanding of the vibrational spectra of selected species.
