Debye-Waller Factors and Absorptive Scattering Factors of Elemental Crystals
AbstractDebye-Waller factors and absorptive scattering factors are given of 44 elemental crystals over the temperature range from 1 to 1000 K or to the melting temperature, whichever is smaller. The Debye-Waller factors are derived from the experimentally determined phonon density of states and the accuracy of these factors is typically 2 to 3%. Necessary data have also been compiled for an additional 22 elemental crystals for which the characteristic Debye temperatures are known. These data can be used to estimate the Debye-Waller factor at any temperature using the analytical Debye expression of the phonon density of states.
