Paper Abstract

The Raman scattering by phonons and magnons was studied at room temperature in polycrystalline solid solutions NicMg1-cO and pure NiO. The experimental Raman spectrum of NiO consists of six well resolved bands, whose origin is due to the disorder-induced one-phonon scattering (bands at 400 and 500 cm-1), two-phonon scattering (bands at 750, 900 and 1100 cm-1) and two-magnon scattering (band at 1500 cm-1). In NicMg1-cO solid solutions, a relative increase of one-phonon scattering is observed upon a dilution of nickel oxide by magnesium ions: at room temperature, the two-magnon band becomes invisible for c < 0.7, whereas the two-phonon contribution disappears at c < 0.5. Such behavior is explained by disorder-induced effect, caused by chemical substitution and off-center displacement of nickel ions.
