Comparative Studies of Phonon Frequency Spectrum of HTSCs GdBa2Cu3O7 and SmBa2Cu3O7 Through Normal Co-Ordinate Analysis

Abstract The prime application of Nano technology is High temperature superconductor. The Raman spectroscopy of HTSC explains that the role played by the phonons in the mechanism of superconductivity in the perovskite family of superconductors is not fully understood although a large series of experimental results has shown considerable coupling of some phonons to electronic excitation in these systems. Optical spectroscopy and especially Raman and Infrared spectroscopy revealed strong direct influences of the changes in the electronic states to the phonon at the center of the Brillouin. However, it is indispensable to have a precise knowledge of the zone –boundary phonons to investigate the contribution of electron-phonon coupling to Tc which can be achieved by neutron scattering techniques. The most commonly employed model is the valence force field model for computing phonon frequencies based on stretching bond and bending bond coordinates. Such models have the advantage of being well adopted to describe a covalent bonding but ignored the long–range Coulomb forces and wave vector dependence of the phonon spectrum. Even though a fairly good amount of literature is available on the vibrational spectra of high temperature superconductors, still some specific feature in the experimental vibration spectra could not be assigned reliable to a definite type of vibration. Hence a normal coordinate analysis (NCA) which is applicable to zero wave-vector normal-mode vibrations have been carried out for the high temperature superconductors and the assignment of specific features like phonon softening and hardening were looked in for the clear understanding of the superconducting mechanism in these new class materials. In the normal coordinate analysis, PED play an important role for characterization of the relative contributions from each internal coordinate to the total potential energy associated with particular normal coordinate of the molecule. The contribution to the potential energy from the individual diagonal elements give rise to a conceptual link between the empirical analysis of infrared spectra of complex molecules dealing with characteristic group frequencies and the theoretical approach from the computation of the normal modes. NCA gives complete assessment of all normal vibration modes of the system.
