Abstract

Gaseous bubble inclusions in bismuth germanate (BGO) and bismuth germanium silicon oxide (BGSO) crystals were studied by means of Raman spectroscopy at room temperature. Their Raman spectra in the range from 60 to 70 cm−1 showed three peaks for the rotational Raman modes of O2 and N2. Vibrational Raman modes of O2 and N2 were also recorded for BGO and BGSO crystals. It was found that all the rotational and vibrational modes were blue shifted from those of free molecules due to the hydrostatic pressure in the bubbles. Internal pressure in the bubbles was estimated from the rotational and vibrational Raman mode frequencies. O2 gas pressure in the bubble was estimated as 140 GPa, and N2 gas pressure, as 31 GPa. The pressure coefficient of the vibrational mode frequency of O2 (0.368 cm−1/GPa for O2 vibrational mode of 1580 cm−1) and N2 (0.322 cm−1/GPa for N2 vibrational mode of 2331 cm−1) was also obtained from the blue shift and the calculated bubble pressure.
