Abstract

In this paper we will study the properties of several unusual Raman scattering peaks in heavily irradiated NaCl with vast amounts of colloidal sodium and chlorine precipitates. It appears that the laser excitation light interacts with both the electronic and vibration systems of the Na colloids, which gives rise to new Raman scattering peaks, which can be associated with electronic and vibrational excitations confined in extremely thin (about 6 nm) quantum wires.
