Physical Review B
High-resolution Brillouin scattering experiments are performed under hydrostatic pressures ranging from 0 to 10 GPa in vitreous silica. The hypersound-attenuation coefficient exhibits a sharp maximum located at 2 GPa, which appears to coincide with the well-known minimum in sound velocity. Two main processes contribute to sound damping: the thermal relaxation of local defects and the anharmonic interactions with thermal vibrations. By analyzing the temperature dependence of the velocity anddoi:10.1103/physrevb.84.024201 fatcat:by7eomx37bbnncs4byffobjc2i
