Raman spectra of amorphous Si and related tetrahedrally bonded semiconductors

Abstract

Raman scattering has been studied in the amorphous form of Si and several related, tetrahedrally bonded semiconductors (Ge, GaAs, GaP, InSb). All vibrational modes of the material can take part in the scattering process, and the Raman spectrum is a measure of the density of vibrational states. The amorphous phases are found to have vibrational spectra very similar to the corresponding crystals, reflecting the similarity in short-range order of the two phases. © 1971 The American Physical Society.
