The reflection spectra of the one-dimensional ionic conductors K1.6Al1.6Ti6.4O16 and Rb1.49Al1.65Ti6.35O15.92 have been measured for the polarizations E ∥ c (channel direction) and E {norm of matrix} c in the frequency region 60-2000 cm-1. The spectra of these two compounds are very similar with their features and have the same number of bands. The vibrational mode frequencies are obtained from a Kramers-Kronig analysis for each polarized reflectivity spectrum. A comparison of the corresponding mode frequencies for both priderites shows that only the lowest frequency mode observed in the E {norm of matrix} c spectra is strongly associated with the alkali ion, while the others are not. The effect due to the non-stoichiometry is not found in the infrared reflection spectra.
