The scattering of light on sound waves in the hypersonic range of frequencies the directional sensitivity of Brillouin light scattering

Tomasz Błachowicz
From the journal Open Physics

Abstract

Brillouin spectroscopy of acoustic phonons in transparent crystals and nontransparent metallic Co/Cu superlattices is reviewed. The method presents a directional sensitivity of the experiment. This feature is useful in elastic constants measurements in crystals and analysis of in-plane anisotropies of hyper-sound and spin waves in superlattices. Results for the LiTaO3, LiNbO3, LiNbO3:Cu, SLGO, SLAO crystals are provided. Spin wave results for the Co/Cu superlattices are presented.
