Abstract

Raman spectroscopy has been used to study the tellurite minerals spiroffite and carlfriesite, which are minerals of formula type A2(X3O8) where A is Ca2+ for the mineral carlfriesite and is Zn2+ and Mn2+ for the mineral spiroffite. Raman bands for spiroffite observed at 721 and 743 cm-1 , and 650 cm-1 are attributed to the ν1 (Te3O8)2- symmetric stretching mode and the ν3 (Te3O8)2- antisymmetric stretching modes respectively. A second spiroffite mineral sample provided a Raman spectrum with bands at 727 cm-1 assigned to the ν1 (Te3O8)2- symmetric stretching modes and the band at 640 cm-1 accounted for by the ν3 (Te3O8)2- antisymmetric stretching mode. The Raman spectrum of carlfreisite shiowed an intense band at 721 cm-1. Raman bands for spiroffite, observed at (346, 394) and 466 cm-1 are assigned to the (Te3O8)2- ν2 (A1) bending mode and ν4 (E) bending modes. The Raman spectroscopy of the minerals carlfriesite and spiroffite are difficult because of the presence of impurities and other diagenetically related tellurite minerals.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
