In this article, we present a comparative study of the Raman spectra of alkali halides in relation to the lattice dynamics of Born and Raman. It is shown that the experimentally observed limit of the second-order spectra in almost all the cases can be explained well by the Lyddane-Sachs-Teller relation. It is also seen, while, an explanation of the second-order Raman spectrum of a crystal of diamond or zinc blende structure requires the frequencies from the critical points,W, Γ, X and L inBorn's analysis, the frequencies from Γ, X andL alone are sufficient and necessary for an interpretation of the same on Raman's model. Some similarities in the determination of the long wave properties of crystals like elastic constants and limiting frequencies of the lattice vibrations in the symmetry directions in both the models are pointed out.
