ABSTRACT
Impurity-induced modes at 212 and 535 cm[sup -1] have been studied by using Raman scattering spectroscopy in Be-doped cubic boron nitride single crystals, which have been grown by the temperature-gradient method under high pressure. Those bands show prominent polarization properties of T[sub 2] and A[sub 1] modes for the 212 and 535 cm[sup -1] bands, respectively. Based on the polarization properties and a simple calculation of a molecular model, the origin of the bands is explained by postulating resonance modes of substitutional Be with a weak force constant between the host atoms and the Be. Anomalies of a forbidden transverse optical mode and the T[sub 2] mode due to phonon-plasma coupling caused by photoexcited free carriers have been also observed in high excitation density.

Filling small-diameter BN nanotubes results in a linear chain of C[SUB60] molecules in the interior, while filling large diameter BN nanotubes leads to nanorods of crystalline C[SUB60] in the...
