Abstract

The pressure dependence of the Raman spectrum of low albite, NaAlSi3O8, has been investigated from 0.0001 to 10.4 GPa, at room temperature, on a single crystal compressed hydrostatically in a diamond anvil cell. The Raman vibrational features move to higher wavenumbers υi with increasing pressure, due to the decrease in the unit-cell volume corresponding to a drastic shrinkage of the framework. The slopes Δυi/ΔP of the four investigated bending modes (i.e. at 478, 507, 578 and 815 cm−1, at 0.0001 GPa) show evident changes at ~6.5 and ~8.5 GPa. This behaviour may be ascribed, in the absence of phase transitions, to the evolution of the compressional mechanisms at the atomic scale found in previous high-pressure studies on albite (mainly by X-ray diffraction), through a model based on tilts of rigid tetrahedra. The Raman data of this study allowed also to bracket the pressure range in which the occurrence of the first change in the compressional behaviour was found by X-ray diffraction.
