Abstract

Resonant Raman Scattering is a useful tool to probe the electronic band structure of semiconductors, and to study the electron-phonon interaction in them. Pressure-induced resonance Raman scattering in multiple quantum well structures, of even small multiplicity (≈ 10 layers), is a strong enough effect to be useful for probing the electronic structure and characterize the sample. The nature of the resonance mechanisms can be experimentally clarified by the simultaneous measurement of both the photoluminescence and the Raman intensities on the same spot of the sample as a function of pressure. Some recent pressure-induced resonance Raman studies on GaAs and GaAs based superlattice systems are presented and reviewed.
