Strain effects on the lattice-dynamical properties of titanium dioxide — •Peter Weber, Sebastian Tillack, Pasquale Pavone, and Claudia Draxl — Humboldt-Univeristät zu Berlin, Physics Department and IRIS Adlershof, Germany
A fingerprint of temperature-related anharmonic effects in a crystal is the change of the phonon frequencies with the volume. For anisotropic crystals, this variation must be generalized by the introduction of the mode Grüneisen tensor, which expresses the change of the phonon frequencies with respect to any applied strain. In this work, we present the results of an ab-initio investigation of the strain effects on the lattice-dynamical properties of the rutile and anatase phases of TiO2. In particular, we focus our attention to the determination of the generalized Grüneisen parameters at the Brillouin zone center.
In order to obtain all independent components of the Grüneisen tensor for these phases, all polar and nonpolar phonon frequencies at the Γ point are calculated for several strained configurations. These calculations are performed using density-functional theory as implemented in the full-potential all-electron software package T1lmttbnexciting . The connection between the Grüneisen tensors of the acoustic branches and the elastic constants of these materials is analyzed and discussed. Our results are also compared with available Raman scattering data for strained TiO2.
