Abstract: A van der Waals three body force rigid shell model (VTRSM) developed earlier for NaCl and CsCl structure was expanded by us for zinc blende structure (ZBS). This model includes the effect of three body interactions and van der Waals interactions in the rigid shell model where short-range interactions were considered up to the second neighbor. Our model thus developed was applied to study the phonon dispersion curves, Debye temperature variation, two phonon Raman/IR spectra, and anharmonic elastic properties of ZnS. Our results are in good agreement with the measured data wherever available.
Keywords: Phonons, van der Waals interactions, Debye temperature, combined density of states curve, Raman spectra, zinc sulfide, phonon dispersion curves, lattice dynamics
