Electronic Raman Spectroscopy

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


As discussed in Sect. 4.3, experimental measurements of the bilayer graphene Landau level structure with infrared absorption showed that tight-binding description for neutral bilayer is unable to describe all the important physics. Some theoretical explanations were suggested, based both on many-body effects and charging effects, but the issue has not yet been clarified. It would be therefore beneficial to have at one’s disposal another probe of the Landau level structure but with different selection rules. Then, electronic excitations between different pairs of levels would be measured. This could help gain more insight into the physics of the problem.
