Infrared investigation of the phonon spectrum in the frustrated spin cluster compound FeTe2O5Cl

We present our optical investigations on the frustrated spin cluster compound FeTe2O5Cl, which develops a long-range antiferromagnetic order below 10 K. We measure the optical reflectivity from the far-infrared to the ultraviolet with polarized light. We focus our attention on the lattice dynamics by discussing the infrared-active modes. Our findings reveal a polarization dependence of the vibrational modes but which do not seem to be affected by structural anomalies linked to the magnetically ordered state at low temperatures.
