Abstract

Polarized reflectance measurements revealed a deep indentation in the chain-axis reflectance at a substantially lower frequency than the ordinary (C EQUVLNT N) stretching frequency. The frequency-dependent conductivity had a deep antiresonance at about the same frequency. This structure was attributed to a phase-phonon mode of the coupled electron-intramolecular vibration system. These data provide the first direct evidence for the importance of the interaction of the conduction electrons with molecular vibrations in a metal chain compound.
