The Raman spectra of mixed crystals TlInS2xSe2(1-x) have been investigated in the composition range of 0.25 <= x <= 0.75 and in the high-frequency region of 250-350 cm(-1) at room temperature. It was observed that Raman-active mode frequencies decrease as the selenium atoms content increases in the mixed crystals. The effect of crystal disorder on the line broadening of three high-frequency modes is reported. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
