Example text

According to Refs [3,4]' the vibrations of the different invariant subspaces are orthogonal and consequently do not interact. As a result, after the summation of all the contributions into the density of states in this "intermediate" part of the phonon spectrum, the sharp maximum on the nonzero background does not vanish and the discussed vibrations do not delocalize. (A) (Fig. 6b) at frequencies not typical for normal quasilocal vibrations. PARTIAL FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS FOR A REALISTIC MODEL; THE HTS-CRYSTALS In the preceding section we considered a simple model of a multilayer crystal.

We begin with a scalar model of the vibrations of a cubic harmonic crystal with isotopic impurities, described by the Hamiltonian Ho = " 2'14- 2 Pi " + 2'1L.. (-1 - 1)" L... Hint = -1 m 2 Aij Ui Uj , 't,) 'I, . • Ci 2 Pi . Here the index i enumerates the sites of a monoatomic cubic lattice, and Ui and Pi are the atom displacement and momentum operators, respectively, Aij are the force constants, m is the mass of defect, Ci = 1 if the corresponding site is occupied by a defect and Ci = 0 in the opposite case, while the remaining parameters of the ideal crystal (the mass of the atom, the lattice constant, and the sound velocity) are all assumed to be equal to unity.

6 VWm w Fig. 9 in the layer. We see that the vibration localization remains, but the distinct peaks of the localized vibrations shift to the low frequency region. The density of states of the oxygen atoms are concentrated in the same frequency region where the density of states of CU02 "molecules" are concentrated according to the calculations on the basis of the simplified model. The vibration frequencies of the more heavy atoms Cu shift to the lower end ofthe spectrum. Fig. 8. presents the functions Vpu2(W) (i = x,y,z) describinq the contribution of the Cu2 atoms located in the CU02 layer to density of states l(v CU2 (w) = V~u2(w) + V~U2(W) + v~U2(w)l.
