Abstract

Tellurc acid ammonium phosphate (TAAP) is a new class m ferroelectric with a transition temperature of 45 degree C. Structural data and preliminary spectroscopic studies confirmed the presence of N-H...O hydrogen bonds. Raman spectroscopic studies on this crystal were carried out in the temperature range 20-80 degree C to look for possible spectral changes as a result of phase transition. A detailed analysis of the line width and frequencies was carried out across the phase transition in order to understand the nature of the phase transition. From the spectral features of the bands in different regions it is inferred that the groups $TeO_6$, $PO_4$ and $NH_4$ do not undergo changes that could trigger the phase transition. On the other hand, the broadening of the bands in the range 2600-3400 $cm^{-1}$ suggests the possibility of an order-disorder type of transition phenomenon involving hydrogen bonds. This is further supported by the shift of the transition temperature from 45 to 87 degree C on deuteration.
