Abstract:

All the treatments of the interaction between electromagnetic radiation and phonons in ionic crystals assume that the electromagnetic field can be considered as uniform. With the very strong absorption present in such crystals this assumption leads to serious errors for all finite angles of incidence. Taking into account the nonuniformity of the field leads to the conclusion that significant interaction with the LO modes exists even in crystals of cubic symmetry, contrary to all other theoretical models assuming the uniformity of the electromagnetic field.
