Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl titanate mineral holfertite CaxU2-xTi(O8-xOH4x)•3H2O and the lack of metamictization
Frost, Ray L. (2011) Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl titanate mineral holfertite CaxU2-xTi(O8-xOH4x)•3H2O and the lack of metamictization. Radiation Effects and Defects in Solids, 166(1), pp. 24-29.
Raman spectra of the uranyl titanate mineral holfertite CaxU2-xTi(O8-xOH4x)•3H2O were analysed and related to the mineral structure. Observed bands are attributed to the TiO and (UO2)2+ stretching and bending vibrations, U-OH bending vibrations, H2O stretching, bending. The mineral holfertite is metamict as is evidenced by order/disorder of the mineral. Unexpectedly the Raman spectrum of holfertite does not show any metamictization. The intensity of the UO stretching and bending modes show normal intensity and the bands are sharp.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
