Abstract

Abstract The hot-electron energy-loss rate conditioned by confined and interface polar-optical phonons for a Cd 0.35Zn 0.65Se quantum wire embedded in ZnSe medium is investigated theoretically. It is shown that the inclusion of the polar-optical phonon confinement effects is crucial for accurate calculation of the energy-loss rate in quantum wire. Taking into account the nonequilibrium phonon populations, the hot-electron energy-loss rate is derived by a model, which includes the lowest subband occupation and the phonon confinement effects. The contribution of intersubband transitions to electron energy-loss rate as well as the relaxation time of the electron temperature with and without hot-phonon bottleneck effect is estimated.
