Abstract

The phonon densities of states in disordered solid solutions of aluminum in silver are determined using the Jacobi matrix method. The transformation of discrete vibrational levels (local vibrational modes) into an impurity band with increasing concentration of impurity atoms is investigated. The formation of discrete vibrational levels is associated with the presence of individual aluminum impurity atoms in the lattice. It is demonstrated that, at relatively low (approximately 5-15%) aluminum concentrations, the broadening of the main local level is accompanied by the appearance of additional resonance peaks, which contain important information on the interatomic interactions in these solid solutions.
