We report Raman scattering measurements in GaAs that has been damaged by irradiation with either high-energy electrons or neutrons. We observe new and relatively sharp peaks which are attributed to vibrational modes of intrinsic point defects, most likely an As vacancy.

    We intentionally generated surface defects in WSe2 using a low energy argon (Ar+) ion-beam. We were unable to detect any changes in lattice structure through Raman spectroscopy as expected through simulation. Meanwhile, atomic force microscopy showed roughened surfaces with a high density of...
