[Pending] Continuum Models of Phonons in Nanostructures

By Michael Stroscio

Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL

Published on


This presentation will summarize the dielectric continuum model and its use in describing optical phonons and the elastic continuum model and its use in describing acoustic phonons. The talk will illustrate how to use these continuum models to describe few-phonon processes. In addition, the talk will discuss how to use these continuum results to model carrier-phonon interactions and to explain why confined phonon effects are especially important is selected classes of optoelectonic devices. The presentation will address the use of these continuum models in describing nanoscale structures.
