    • Abstract


      The optic mode Gruneisen parameters in silver, caesium and thallium halides are calculated using the Born model for interionic forces and the Szigeti theory of dielectric constants. The strain derivatives of the electronic and static dielectric constants are also evaluated and compared with experimental data. The strain derivative of static dielectric constant reveals the inadequacy of the Born model for the crystals under study. Possible modifications have been suggested to improve the situation. The theoretical values of the optic mode Gruneisen parameters closely agree with recent experimental data. An appropriate process has been adopted to evaluate the average values for the Gruneisen parameter.
