Abstract
The surface displacement technique is used to measure the temperature and frequency dependence of the periodic expansion of a CaF2-surface subject to a modulated focused beam of 1keV electrons. Theoretical models are presented for a prediction of the observed phenomena based on thermal transport and defect lifetime effects. The use of such investigations for the study of thermal and non-thermal transport phenomena in alkaline-earth halides is discussed.
