Optical Properties of Phonons

  • Claus F. Klingshirn
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


Having presented the optical properties of a system of model oscillators and the elementary excitations in semiconductors, we shall now start to put these two parts together. As a first example we investigate the optical properties of phonons. We start with the properties of bulk materials.
