We report here a new, complete vibrational analysis of L-alanine and L-alanine-d4 which utilizes inelastic neutron scattsring intensities (INS) in addition to frequency information, and present a self-consistent force field for the molecular vibrations in crystalline L-alanine based on a comparison of computed and observed INS spectra.
