Abstract

We have measured the dependence of the strength of Raman activity of polycrystalline m-WO3 on spot size at constant laser power density. These data are compared to surface area scaling measurements obtained using scanning tunneling microscopy. We argue that the spatial distribution of scattering centers is the complement of the spatial distribution of crystallographic shear (CS) structures on or near the oxide surface. Our results are consistent with there being an essentially uniform spatial distribution of scattering sites which implies the spatial distribution of defect sites is also uniform. At the laser power density involved and at the defect densities studied, we found no evidence suggesting a large amount of cooperativity in the formation of CS structures. These results suggest a qualitative description of the structure of common oxide surfaces in agreement with a basic assumption of the JMAK theory of first order phase transformations.
