We performed terahertz time-domain spectroscopy on glassy glucose, and successfully detected the boson peak, which is a universal feature of glassy materials. In addition, we have experimentally determined the infrared-vibration coupling coefficient (CIR(v)) using the vibrational density of states. The obtained CIR(v) shows linear frequency-dependence and… CONTINUE READING
