Studies of Nonequilibrium Phonons by Optical Techniques

  • Karl F. Renk
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 124)

Abstract

Optical techniques of phonon generation and detection and the application for the study of phonon scattering processes are described in this article. Special emphasis is put on the discussion of high-frequency acoustic phonons in the terahertz frequency range. As important phonon scattering processes, spontaneous decay of acoustic phonons by splitting processes, caused by the crystal anharmonicity, and elastic resonance scattering and inelastic scattering at impurity ions are treated.
