Investigation of inelastic light scattering in heavily electron-irradiated alkali halides

By D.I. Vainshtein, H.W. den Hartog, A. Klimovitkii and E.I. Shtyrkov


The properties of several unusual Raman scattering peaks observed in heavily irradiated NaCl with vast amounts of colloidal sodium are investigated. A new peak (at 3580 cm-1) has been observed far beyond the cut-off limit of the one-phonon spectrum. This scattering phenomenon has been explained with an electron quantum confinement model where the electronic excitations are quantized as expected for wire-like structures of nano-particles of metallic sodium.
