Electron Raman scattering in cylindrical quantum wires

  • Mathematics
  • Physics


Electron Raman scattering (ERS) is investigated in a free-standing semiconductor quantum wire of cylindrical geometry for two classes of materials CdS and GaAs. The differential cross section (DCS) involved in this process is calculated as a function of a scattering frequency and the radius of the cylinder. Electron states are considered to be confined within a free-standing quantum wire (FSW). Single parabolic conduction and valence bands are assumed. The selection rules are studied. Singularities in the spectra are found and interpreted for various radii of the cylinder. Copyright EDP Sciences/Società Italiana di Fisica/Springer-Verlag 2006
