    We observed a violation of the normal Raman selection rule in the resonant Raman spectra of interface (IF) phonon modes of the ultrathin (GaAs)[sub 4]/(AlAs)[sub 2] superlattice. Contrary to the prediction of conventional theories, all four IF modes were observed in both (XX) and (XY)...

    Raman scattering in a number of BeTe/ZnSe type-II superlattices which share no common cations or anions in the interfaces was studied. Folded acoustic phonons; LO phonons of the first, second, and third order in the ZnSe layers; and Kliewer–Fuchs-type electrostatic interface phonons were...
