Abstract: Temperature-dependent Raman scattering studies in polycrystalline MgB2 (10 < T < 300 K) reveal that the E-2g phonon does not experience any self-energy renormalization effect across the superconducting critical temperature T-C approximate to 39 K, in contrast with most of the current theoretical models. In the presence of our results, those models must be reviewed. The analysis of the temperature dependence of the E-2g phonon frequency yields an isobaric Gruneisen parameter of \gamma(E2g)\ less than or equal to 1, smaller than the value of 3.9 obtained from isothermal Raman experiments under pressure. It is suggested that this apparent disagreement can be explained in terms of pressure-induced changes of the topology of the Fermi surface. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
