This phonon atlas offers a set of phonon-dispersion and density-of states curves of greater than 100 insulating crystals. It grew out of an appendix to a guide article on phonon spectra [2.1J from which it was once fin best friend separated typically simply because this phonon atlas presents a slightly self-con tained instrument for each scientist who's operating within the box of dynamical houses of solids. He frequently might locate it' precious to have a convenient documen tation of the experimental phonon dispersion curves that have been measured thus far, including details on calculated dispersion family and densities of states. The e-book can be chanced on to be incomplete through readers who're not just in phonon frequencies of a particular crystal yet could additionally wish to find out about similar houses similar to elastic and dielectric constants. this is often, this day, past the scope of this quantity, however the authors could welcome all feedback and feedback which may be thought of for a forth coming variation. in addition, we might be happy to supply readers with information regarding phonon spectra which got here to our wisdom after of completion of the manuscript. however, we'll be so much thankful for all information regarding phonon dispersion curves that is lacking in our assortment or new information for extra editions.
