Since the development of the laser in the early 1960's, light scattering has played an increasingly crucial role in the investigation of many types of phase transitions and the published work in this field is now widely dispersed in a large number of books and journals. A comprehensive overview of contemporary theoretical and experimental research in this field is presented here. The reviews are written by authors who have actively contributed to the developments that have taken place in both Eastern and Western countries.H.Z. Cummins, A.P. Levanyuk. et al. 1973). At high temperatures (140a1900C) the monoclinic I crystals transform continuously into a D2], point-group symmetry phase (orthorhombic I). A highly schematic phase diagram is given in fig. 17.
