Inelastic light scattering of hydrogen containing open-cage fullerene ATOCF

242_12/2005The cover picture of the current issue refers to the Rapid Research Letter by Rafailov et al. [1]. The article presents Raman measurements on Aza-Thia Open-Cage Fullerene (ATOCF) containing hydrogen molecules. The authors analyze the spectral bands of empty and H2-filled ATOCF and compare them with Raman spectra of pristine C60. The picture shows a C60-derived open-cage fullerene hosting an H2 molecule.

The first author Peter Rafailov works on Raman spectroscopy of C60 crystals and intercalated compounds as well as on carbon nanotubes. He focuses on spectroelectrochemistry and on electron–phonon coupling. He holds a permanent position at the Institute of Solid State Physics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia, Bulgaria.
