Phonon-polaritons/phonons dans les cristaux mixtes à base de ZnSe de structures zincblende et wurtzite : diffusion Raman en avant/arrière, schéma de percolation

Abstract : Inelastic Raman scattering is implemented in the unusual (near-)forward scattering geometry (schematically operating in the ‘transmission mode’) to explore the nature and properties of the (polar) phonon-polariton modes of various ZnSe-based A1-xBxC mixed crystals. An overall insight is searched by selecting systems that relate to the same parent compound for the sake of consistency – namely ZnSe – but with different crystal structures, i.e. of the zincblende (cubic: Zn1-xBexSe, ZnSe1-xSx, ZnxCd1-xSe) and wurtzite (hexagonal: Zn1-xMgxSe) types. Most of all, altogether the retained systems span the full variety of behavior in the native (non polar) phonon regime of the phonon-polaritons, including the over-diversified [1×(A−B),2×(A−C)] and sub-diversified 1×(A−B,A−C) deviations with respect to the nominal [1×(A−B),1×(A−C)] type, also referred to as the multi-mode, 1-mixed-mode and 2-mode types, respectively, in the admitted classification of the conventional Raman spectra of mixed crystals taken in the backscattering geometry (schematically operating in the ‘reflection mode’). Fair contour modeling of the obtained phonon-polariton Raman spectra is achieved within the linear dielectric response theory based on ellipsometry measurements of the refractive index and with ab initio calculations in support done on prototypal impurity motifs in both dilute limits (x~0,1), as needed to secure the reduced set of input parameters that govern the native (non polar) phonon mode behavior of the used mixed crystals. The backward/near-forward Raman spectra are discussed within the scope of the so-called percolation model developed within our group for a renewed understanding of the optical vibration spectra of the mixed crystals. This model formalizes a view that the chemical bonds of a given species vibrate at different frequencies in a mixed crystal depending on their like or foreign environment at the very local (first- or second-neighbor) scale. This introduces a generic 1-bond→2-mode phonon behavior for a mixed crystal, presumably a universal one. The main results enunciate as follows. [...]
