Abstract

Zircon- and reidite-type ZrSiO4 produced by shock recovery experiments at different pressures have been studied using infrared (IR) and Raman spectroscopy. The {nu}3 vibration of the SiO4 group in shocked natural zircon shows a spectral change similar to that seen in radiation-damaged zircon: a decrease in frequency and increase in linewidth. The observation could imply a possible similar defective crystal structure between the damaged and shocked zircon. The shock-pressure-induced structural phase transition from zircon (I41/amd) to reidite (I41/a) is proven by the occurrence of additional IR and Raman bands. Although the SiO4 groups in both zircon- and reidite-ZrSiO4 are isolated, the more condensed scheelite gives rise to Si–O stretching bands at lower frequencies, suggesting a weakening of the bond strength. Low-temperature IR data of the reidite-type ZrSiO4 show an insignificant effect of cooling on the phonon modes, suggesting that the structural response of reidite to cooling-induced compression is weak and its thermal expansion is very small.
