Abstract

We report the far-infrared transmittance spectrum of a pure phase of the orthorhombic high-temperature and high-pressure C60 polymer and compare the results with a previously published spectrum of the charged RbC60 orthorhombic polymer. Assignments for both spectra are made with the aid of first-principles quantum molecular dynamics simulations of the two materials. We find that the striking spectral differences between the neutral and charged linear fullerene polymers can be fully accounted for by charge effects on the C60 ball.
