Raman spectrum of a quantum dot (QD) is characterized by transverse (TO) and longitudinal (LO) optical modes as well as surface optical modes, occurring between the TO and LO modes. We have studied in detail the size-dependence of the Raman spectrum of InP QD of diameter larger than 35 Ã…. The LO phonon frequency decreases while the TO phonon frequency increases with decreasing QD size. The linewidth of the LO phonon broadens and the broadening becomes increasingly asymmetrical towards the low frequency side as the QD size decreases. By analyzing the Raman intensity ratio of the LO phonon to its overtone, we find that the electron-phonon coupling decreases with decreasing QD size.
