Calculation of the Spontaneous Polarization and the Dielectric Constant as a Function of Temperature for KH2PO4

The temperature dependence of the spontaneous polarization P is calculated in the ferroelectric phase (T < T-C) of KH2PO4 (KDP) at atmospheric pressure (T-C = 122 K). Also, the dielectric constant e is calculated at various temperatures in the paraelectric phase (T > T-C) of KDP at atmospheric pressure. For this calculation of P and epsilon, by fitting the observed Raman frequencies of the soft mode, the microscopic parameters of the pure tunnelling model are obtained. In this model, the proton-lattice interaction is not considered and the collective proton mode is identified with the soft-mode response of the system. Our calculations show that the spontaneous polarization decreases continuously in the ferroelectric phase as approaching the transition temperature T-C. Also, the dielectric constant decreases with increasing temperature and it diverges in the vicinity of the transition temperature (T-C = 122 K) for KDP according to the Curie-Weiss law.


Calculation of the Raman and IR frequencies as order parameters and the damping constant (FWHM) close to phase transitions in methylhydrazinium structures
Kurt, M.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Kurt, A. (Elsevier BV, 2019-4)
Temperature dependences of the frequencies for the Raman modes of v (NH2), v(s) (CH3), v(1) (HCOO-), vs (CNN) and IR mode of rho (NH2) are calculated in particular, for MHyMn close to the phase transition temperature (T-C = 220 K) in the family of compounds CH3NH2NH2 M(HCOO)(3), MHyM with M = Mn, Mg, Fe and Zn. By assuming Raman and infrared frequency as an order parameter, this calculation is performed from the molecular field theory by using the experimental data from the literature. We also calculate the...
Calculation of the Raman frequency and the damping constant (linewidth) of the stretching modes for the metal-organic compound DMMg close to the paraelectric-ferroelectric transitions
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2018-01-01)
We calculate the Raman frequencies of the two stretching modes of as a function of temperature close to the paraelectric-ferroelectric transition (Tc = 270K) in (CH3)(2)NH2Mg(HCOO)(3) referred as DMMg. By assuming that the Raman frequencies of those two modes which exhibit anomalous behaviour near Tc due to the ordering of the dimethlyammonium cations (DMA(+)) as observed experimentally, are associated with the spontaneous polarization (order parameter), their Raman frequencies and damping constants are pre...
Calculation of the thermodynamic quantities from the Raman frequency shifts and the Pippard relations for the alpha, -alpha and alpha ' phases of oxygen
Tari, O.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2018-01-01)
Thermodynamic quantities such as the isothermal compressibility, thermal expansion and the difference in the specific heat are calculated as a function of pressure (T=10 K) for the alpha,-alpha and alpha ' phases of oxygen using the observed Raman frequencies of the two librons and one vibron from the literature through the mode Gruneisen parameter for this molecular solid. Calculated thermodynamic quantities decrease with increasing pressure with some discrepancies due to the different pressure - induced R...
Calculation of the Brillouin frequencies close to phase transitions in NaNO2
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2002-01-01)
We calculate here the Brillouin frequencies of the L-mode [010], [001] and [100] of NaNO2 for the phase transitions from the paraelectric phase to the sinusoidal anti-ferroelectric phase near the Neel temperature (T-N = 437.7 K) and to the ferroelectric phase near the critical temperature (T-c = 436.3 K) in this crystalline system. For calculating the frequencies, we use the thermal expansivity data for the phase regions considered, under the assumption that the mode Gruneisen parameter determined for each ...
Calculation of the Damping Constant and the Relaxation Time for the Soft-Optic and Acoustic Mode in Hexagonal Barium Titanate
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2012-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the damping constant is calculated below the transition temperature (T-0 = 222K) in the ferroelectric phase of hexagonal barium titanate. The damping constant of the coupled soft-optic and acoustic mode which causes an intense central peak in the light scattering spectra, is calculated using the soft mode-hard mode coupling model and the energy fluctuation model for barium titanate.
