Vibrational Properties of Sodium Substituted β-Tricalcium Phosphate


Article Preview

The infrared and Raman spectra of Na substituted β-TCP are presented for various levels of substitution. The influence of Na content on main vibrational modes appears significant and among them the ν1 symmetric stretching band is very sensitive to PO4 3- tetrahedrons environment. Thus, this mode was particularly investigated and has been decomposed using Lorentzian shapes components. We assigned the calculated components to the different types of PO4 3- tetrahedrons present in the crystalline structure.
