3 Ices studied  H 2 O/CO 2 Composition of the mixtures  H 2 O/CO 2 : ~ 15:1 Preparation of the samples  Sequential deposition (first H 2 O, then CO 2 )  Co-deposition  Inverse sequential deposition (first CO 2, then H 2 O)  Sequential deposition over crystalline structures (first amorphous H 2 O, then annealed, then cooled to 80 K, then CO 2 )

4 Experimental setup RAIRS

5 RAIRS : reflexion-absorption infrared spectroscopy Polarization sPolarization pNon polarized

6 Transmission vs Reflection-Absorption Sequential deposition (H 2 O, CO 2 ) reflection-absorption 3 transmission S-polarization P-polarization

7 A little bit of LO/TO… Molecular vibrations of a single crystal of arbitrary shape: H = H(0) + H’ H(0) : molecular vibrations of uncoupled molecules H’ : long-range dipole-dipole interactions, H ij  e.g.: mol. 2 vibrating in mode  interacting with mol. 3 of all other cells vibrating in mode 

8 Use of D tensor: Use of D tensor: D depends only on the structure of the lattice and shape of the sample, but not on internal molecular properties or molecular orientation; when the shape is of ellipsoid of revolution, D can be calculated numerically H’ = Solving the equation of motion: Solving the equation of motion: H = H(0) + H’ H(0) : uncoupled molecules → ω 0 H’ : dipole-dipole interactions → ω n If dimensions of crystal (typically ~ nm) are much smaller than wavelength of incident radiation (1000 cm -1 <> 10 4 nm), then only factor that influences Ω α is shape of the crystal.

9 Usual experimental conditions: In most IR transmission measurements, incident radiation field lies in plane of substrate; if sample is thin film, then only TO vibrations can be seen (molecular vibrations in the plane of the film), never LO (perpendicular to that plane). Similarly, in RAIR experiments on thin films, only TO vibrations are seen in S polarization (no LO-TO splitting). In this case, the metal surface selection rule (MSSR) also applies. μ’→ω TO μ’→ω LO absorption at ω TO only for normal incidence transmission

10 absorption at ω TO and ω LO and many frequencies in between Polycrystalline sample with many crysytallite shapes If direction of propagation of incident radiation is not normal but tilted then LO and TO can be seen both in transmission and in P polarization RAIR spectra absorption at ω TO and ω LO Other experimental conditions:

11 Co-deposition (H 2 O+CO 2 ) Sequential crystalline S-polarization P-polarization

12 Summary of experimental results   RAIR spectra provide information on physical characteristics of sample   On all depositions (80K), CO 2 tends to form slabs, with two peaks on P-polarization spectra: ~2343 cm -1 (TO), 2380 cm -1 (LO), and only one on S-polarization spectra: ~2340 cm -1 for 3 band   After warming (105K), the CO 2 in slabs is fully desorbed, but a fraction remains with no crystalline structure: one peak at ~2340 cm -1 for both polarizations   This fraction is located inside the water ice and remains until heating up to the water phase change temperature (~165K), except for sequential crystalline deposition, for which all CO 2 is desorbed at 105K

13 Theoretical calculations of pure CO 2 crystals: SIESTA program “Spanish Initiative for Electronic Simulations of Thousands of Atoms” Brief description: Optimization of geometrical structures of periodic systems Calculation of force constants in the harmonic potential approximation Calculation of vibrational modes of the crystal Prediction of “stick” spectrum (frequency and intensity of each normal mode) Description of normal modes in terms of atomic Cartesian displacements Prediction of LO/TO splitting

15 Calculated frequencies (LO/TO splittings in bracketts) 12 CO 2 (LO/TO)Int (0.4) < < (16.0) (29.4)1.04

16 Summary of theoretical results  Theoretical DFT calculations on pure CO 2 ice reproduce observed crystal symmetry and structure and predict vibrational frequencies with ~6% red-shift in worst case  LO-TO splitting is also predicted slightly smaller than observed

17 Future plans  Studies of other binary mixtures: H 2 O/CH 3 OH, H 2 O/NH 3, H 2 O/N 2 O,…  Studies of ternary systems: H 2 O/CH 3 OH/CO 2  Ab initio or DFT calculation of amorphous solids

25 Solving the equation of motion ω n also called ω LO, ω 0 = ω TO Ω α (varies between 0 and 1) ω LO ≥ ω TO (almost) always H = H(0) + H’ H(0) : uncoupled molecules → ω 0 H’ : dipole-dipole interactions → ω n If dimensions of crystal (typically ~ nm) are much smaller than wavelength of incident radiation (1000 cm -1 <> 10 4 nm), then only factor that influences Ω α is shape of the crystal: Spherical crystals: Ω x = Ω y = Ω z = 1/3 and all vibrations ω n = 1/3 (ω LO +2 ω TO ) Thin films: Ω x = Ω y = 0 (for polarization parallel to surface of film), Ω z = 1 (for polarization perpendicular to surface of film); and then two absorptions are seen at exactly ω TO and ω LO.

26 Tensors R and S: For spectroscopic activity, k~0 and summation for D becomes: For spectroscopic activity, k~0 and summation for D becomes: where R depends on crystal structure (cubic, orthorrombic, …) but not on wavevector k, and S conveys the contribution from the sample surface polarization charge, and depends on the shape (slab, needle,…) of the sample but not on the structure of the crystal. For ellipsoids of revolution: with g=0 for sphere, -8π/3 for slab, 4π/3 for long needle
