Краткий обзор статьи: We measured the reflectivity of a single crystal of FeSi from the far-infrared to the visible region (50-20000 wavenumber), varying the temperature between 4 and 300 K. The optical conductivity function was obtained via Kramers-Kronig analysis. We observed a dirty metal-like behavior at room temperature and the opening of a gap of 70 meV at low temperature. The results of a group theoretical analysis of the lattice vibrational modes are presented and compared to the experimental data. Of the five optical phonons expected for this material only four have been observed in the far-infrared region.
