Abstract
The results of the study of the lattice dynamics of superionic conductors – copper and silver chalcogenides by using inelastic neutron scattering are presented. The band structure in the superionic state is calculated by ab initio methods. The experimental spectra are compared with the theoretical calculations for these compounds.
