ABSTRACT
The compositional dependence of the Ge–Ge Raman mode in SnGe alloys has been measured in samples grown on Si substrates using a chemical vapor deposition technique. The experimental result, Δω(s)=(-68±5)s (where s is the Sn concentration), is in very good agreement with a theoretical prediction from a simple model with parameters adjusted to the compositional dependence of Raman frequencies in GeSi alloys. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
