Paper Abstract

Raman spectra of and Bi2PbSr2Ca2Cu3O are presented as a function of increasing x. For the period of superstructure modulation decreases somewhat and oxygen content in the Bi-O planes increases as x increases; for Bi2PbSr2Ca2Cu3O, more lead (increasing x) has the opposite effect of increasing the modulation period and decreasing the oxygen content of the Bi-O layers. More modes are seen in these spectra than are predicted from an analysis based on the space group of the undistorted cell; these extra modes are discussed in terms of group theory predictions of a commensurate supercell with dimensions 4 or 5 times the basic lattice spacing. Extra oxygen in causes the high frequency mode, associated with vibration of oxygen in the Bi-O layers, gradually to broaden and then split. At higher lead additions to Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O, spectra are consistent with formation of a new phase due to limits on lead solubility; the low frequency modes all but disappear while the high frequency mode is strongly shifted down. Other details of the spectra confirm the necessity of considering the superstructure as well as the symmetry of the undistorted unit cell.
