We describe a device that has a resonant cavity for acoustic phonons embedded inside an optical cavity. This double cavity structure is a resonator for acoustical phonons and enhances the interaction between sound and light. We discuss the design and material parameters relevant for the optimization of the acoustic phonon cavities, and we present Raman scattering experiments on GaAs/AlAs structures designed to confine from one to three acoustical phonon modes. We quantitatively study the amplification of the photon–phonon interaction in these devices reporting an enhancement factor of more than five orders of magnitude. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    Raman scattering is used to investigate the room temperature phonons of tetragonal (I4/m) Sr2CoWO6 and monoclinic (P21/n) Ca2CoWO6, Sr2CoTeO6, and Ca2CoTeO6 double perovskites. Both tetragonal and monoclinic structures result from small distortions of the Fm3m cubic lattice....

    We present Raman-scattering measurements on InxGa1-xN over the entire composition range of the alloy. The frequencies of the A1(LO) and E2 modes are reported and show a good agreement with the one-mode behavior dispersion predicted by the modified random-element isodisplacement model. The A1(LO)...

    Electron-phonon coupling in Se species confined in the nanoporous matrix has been investigated by using resonant Raman spectra performed with several different laser lines from deep blue to near infrared. The spectra strongly depend on the energies of the excitation laser lines. The one-phonon...

    Raman scattering at room temperature is reported in Zn1-xMnxO nanoparticles for the range of 0<=x<=0.15. The effect of compositional disorder is obtained by analyzing the broadening and asymmetry of the first-order E2(high) phonon mode. It is found that the Raman line shapes for the ZnO E2(high)...

    We have measured nonresonant and resonant Raman-scattering spectra from ZnO nanocrystals with an average diameter of 20 nm.
