Abstract

An extensive investigation of the temperature dependence of Raman spectra has been carried out on WO powders from 3 room temperature to 8008C. In particular the orthorhombic-to-tetragonal phase transition occurring at about 7408C has been 21 studied for the first time. The Raman active mode at 710 cm of the orthorhombic phase disappears from the spectrum at temperature below the phase transition point and the Raman activity in the tetragonal phase results very low. A comparative study of hydrogenated tungsten bronzes H WO (x#0.23), where the same transition sequence is driven by an increase of x 3 the proton concentration from x50 to 0.23, reveals similar behaviour of the high frequency Raman active modes, which are better resolved due to the weaker anharmonic interactions.
