@article{Serrano2002DeterminationOT, title={Determination of the phonon dispersion of zinc blende (3C) silicon carbide by inelastic x-ray scattering}, author={Jorge Serrano and J Strempfer and Manuel Cardona and Markus Schwoerer-Boehning and H.

We present an experimental and theoretical investigation of the phonon dispersion relations in zinc blende (3C) SiC. The experimental data were obtained for the entire Brillouin zone by inelastic x-ray scattering (IXS) using a synchrotron radiation source. Eigenvector analysis is performed with the aid of state-of-the-art linear response first principles calculations based on density functional theory. The theoretical predictions reproduce the experimental phonon dispersion remarkably well…
