Abstract

THE ordinary form of quartz with trigonal symmetry changes at 575° to a form with hexagonal symmetry, the change being preceded by a progressive change of physical properties. Sir C. V. Raman and T. M. K. Nedungadi find an explanation for these effects as a result of an examination of the scattering of monochromatic light in quartz at various temperatures up to the transition point.
