Abstract

The temperature dependence of the damping constant is calculated below the transition temperature (T-0 = 222K) in the ferroelectric phase of hexagonal barium titanate. The damping constant of the coupled soft-optic and acoustic mode which causes an intense central peak in the light scattering spectra, is calculated using the soft mode-hard mode coupling model and the energy fluctuation model for barium titanate.
