Inelastic neutron scattering and lattice dynamics of minerals (in Neutron scattering in mineral and earth sciences, Romano Rinaldi (editor))
European Journal of Mineralogy (April 2002) 14 (2): 291-329


The essential features of inelastic neutron scattering are reviewed and the application of the technique to forsterite, fayalite, enstatite, the garnets pyrope, almandine, grossular and spessartine, MgSiO (sub 3) perovskite, the Al (sub 2) SiO (sub 5) minerals, vemiculite, muscovite, the SiO (sub 2) polymorphs, zircon, the oxides MgO, FeO and Al (sub 2) O (sub 3) , calcite and rhodochrosite are outlined. Theoretical studies of structurally more complex minerals have largely employed an atomistic approach involving semi-empirical interatomic potentials.
