Abstract The pressure dependence of the phonon modes in the layered semiconductor gamma-InSe has been investigated experimentally and theoretically for pressures up to II GPa. The mode Gruneisen parameters of all Raman-active zone-center phonons have been determined by Raman scattering under pressure. In addition, features corresponding to second and third-order scattering processes are apparent in the Raman spectra under resonance conditions, from which information about zone-edge modes can be obtained. For the assignment of the observed Raman features to vibrational modes we have calculated the phonon dispersion curves using a rigid-ion model including couplings to first-nearest neighbors and long-range Coulomb interaction. At about 7 GPa the sample turns from transparent to opaque and a new Raman mode appears in the spectra at around 165 cm(-1). This is evidence of a pressure-induced structural instability of gamma-InSe, which is optically detected but not by X-ray diffraction.
