We report an investigation of perovskite-type LaNiO3 thin films by Raman scattering in both various scattering configurations and as a function of temperature. The room-temperature Raman spectra and the associated phonon mode assignment provide reference data for phonon calculations and for the use of Raman scattering for structural investigations of LaNiO3, namely, the effect of strain in thin films or heterostructures. The temperature-dependent Raman spectra from 80 to 900 K are characterized by the softening of the rotational A1g mode, which suggests a decreasing rhombohedral distortion toward the ideal cubic structure with increasing temperature.

    The formation of a thin interfacial layer of indium telluride in InSb-CdTe heterostructures has been previously suggested by soft x-ray photoemission (SXPS) results. However, the detailed nature of this layer was difficult to interpret by SXPS. Therefore, samples being previously investigated by...
