The Raman spectrum of a single crystal of MgF2 has been investigated using the resonance radiation of mercury as exciter. The observed Raman lines are of frequency shifts 73, 90, 154, 165, 295, 405, 415, 560, 2 472 and 2 535 cm-1. An analysis of the vibration spectrum has been made taking into account the infrared data of Barker, and the force constants have been calculated. The force constants suggest that the structure of MgF2 has considerable molecular character.
