In a microscope of a micro-Raman spectrometer a cylindrical lens is introduced to form a line-focus microprobe (LFMP). The dimensions of the LFMP are 0.66 x 167 microm. The lateral spatial resolution of Raman scattering with the LFMP is equal to the spatial resolution of the point-focus microprobe (PFMP). It is shown that the LFMP system enables(More)
Raman spectra of acetylacetone were recorded for molecules isolated in an argon matrix at 10 K and for a polycrystalline sample. In the solid sample, broad bands appear superimposed on a much weaker Raman spectrum corresponding mainly to the stable enol form. The position of these bands depends on the excitation wavelength (514.5 and 488.8 nm argon ion(More)
Raman spectrum of aminopropylsilanetriol (APST) in gas phase has been recorded at room temperature in macro chamber utilizing two-mirror technique over the sample tube. Unlike predominantly trans molecular conformation in condensed phase, the spectra of vapor show that the molecules are solely in gauche conformation with intramolecular hydrogen bond N···HO(More)
Molecular structure and vibrational frequencies of 3-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) have been investigated by density functional theory (DFT) calculations using Becke's three-parameter exchange functional combined with Lee-Young-Parr correlation functional (B3-LYP) and standard basis set 6-311++G(d,p). In order to reveal some possible conformations(More)
Two cobalt(II) complexes with 3-hydroxypicolinic acid (3-hydroxypyridine-2-carboxylic acid, 3-OHpicH), trans-[Co(3-OHpic)2(py)2] (2) and cis-[Co(3-OHpic)2(4-pic)2] (3) (py=pyridine; 4-pic=4-picoline or 4-methylpyridine), previously synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, are here studied by Raman and mid-infrared spectroscopy with the help from(More)
Tough glass-ceramic material of special mechanical properties with nanosize crystal phases formed by appropriately controlled crystallization was studied by Raman spectroscopy. It was obtained by TiO2 activated crystallization of Mg-aluminosilicate glass of SiO2-Al2O3-MgO-TiO2-ZnO composition. Crystallization was preceded by a change in the TiO2 structural(More)
Silicon epitaxial wafers, consisting of 280 μm thick n-type substrate layer and 4–5 μm thick epi-taxial layer, were electrochemically etched in hydrofluoric acid ethanol solution, to produce porous silicon samples. The resistivity of epitaxial layer was 1 Ω cm, while the substrate was much better conductor with resistivity 0.015 Ω cm. By varying the etching(More)
Silicon-rich oxide (SiO x , 0 < x < 2) thin films were deposited using the Low Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition (LPCVD) method at temperature of 570 °C using silane (SiH 4) and oxygen as the reactant gasses. The films were annealed at temperatures of 800, 900, 1000, and 1100 °C to induce the separation of excess silicon in the SiO x films into nanosized(More)
