Abstract:

The far-infrared and laser-excited Raman spectra of several Scheelite-type perrhenates have been recorded at 77K and room temperature in order to obtain frequencies and symmetry assignments for the lattice modes. Both NH4ReO4 were studied to separate ammonium ion translations and librations. At 77K the ammonium ion librational mode is observed at 264cm in NH4ReO4 and 194cm in ND4ReO4. Upon warming to 300K the ammonium ion librational mode disappears and is unobservable in both the far-IR and Raman spectra. The Raman-active ammonium ion fundamental modes have also been observed in both NH4ReO4 and ND4ReO4. The temperature-dependent changes in the intensity and line widths of the ammonium ion fundamentals and lattice modes indicate that the ammonium ion motion undergoes a change between 77K and 300K.
