Bandwidths studied as a function of temperature in ammonium halides near T-lambda

This study gives our analysis of the Raman bandwidths using the soft mode-hard mode coupling model applied to ammonium halides. The temperature dependence of our observed bandwidths for the nu(5)(174 cm(-1)) Raman mode of NH4Cl and nu(5)(177 cm(-1)) Raman mode of NH4Br, is analyzed close to phase transitions. From our analysis, we obtain beta = 0.13 as the values of the critical exponent for the order parameter in the first order phase region for the ammonium halides. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
