Inelastic Light Scattering of Semiconductor Nanostructures: by Christian Schüller

By Christian Schüller

Semiconductor nanostructures are a box of large and still-growing examine curiosity. On one hand, they're already learned in mass items, e.g., in high-electron-mobility field-effect transistors and quantum-well lasers. nonetheless, they permit, in especially adapted structures, the research of primary homes, comparable to many-particle interactions of electrons in lowered dimensions. This ebook makes an attempt to fill the distance among common semiconductor textbooks and examine articles. It offers (i) an advent into the elemental ideas of inelastic gentle scattering on semi-conductor nanostructures and into their fabrication and uncomplicated homes, and, (ii) an outline of the main remarkable contemporary advances during this box. each one bankruptcy is as self-contained as attainable. The monograph can be fascinating for researchers, experimentalists in addition to theorists, and examine scholars operating within the box. it may even be attention-grabbing for graduate scholars with wisdom in solid-state physics and quantum mechanics who're drawn to optical spectroscopies of semiconductors.

In this single–particle picture, we can think of intersubband and intrasubband SPE, as indicated in Fig. 1 by thick solid and dotted arrows, respectively. In the following – and for the rest of this book – we will always denote a quasimomentum or wave vector, which is connected to an electronic excitation, by q, while the quasimomentum of an electron in the ground state will be labeled by k (for a Q2D system k ≡ k = (kx , ky )). In Fig. 1 we can see that concerning intersubband excitations we can imagine transitions with finite wave–vector transfer q, and vertical transitions with q = 0.

1), which we introduced above. Then, the Schr¨ odinger equation for an electron (or hole) in the bulk crystal is a set of 8 coupled differential equations, as we have already learned. If we now consider a heterostructure, more specifically a quantum well as shown in Fig. 8, we have to replace in the Hamiltonian kz by −i∂/∂z, because of the quantization in z direction. Furthermore, we have to add the heterostructure (quantum well) potential Vext (z), which, both for the conduction band and the valence band, are square–well potentials as displayed schematically in Fig.
