Publication Detail
Unusual Breathing Behavior of Optically Excited Barium Titanate Nanocrystals
Abstract
Coherent X-ray diffraction patterns were recorded by using an X-ray free-electron laser to illuminate barium titanate nanocrystals as a function of time delay after laser excitation. Rather than seeing any significant thermal expansion effects, the diffraction peaks were found to move perpendicular to the momentum transfer direction. This suggests a laser driven rotation of the crystal lattice, which is delayed by the aggregated state of the crystals. Internal deformations associated with crystal contacts were also observed.
