Abstract

Stimulated by the recent interest in the use of nitride-based III-V wurtzite structures for optoelectronic and electronic devices, this paper reports on the application of the Loudon model for uniaxial crystals to derive the Frohlich interaction Hamiltonian as well as the electron-optical-phonon scattering rate in wurtzite crystals. This paper also presents experimental analyses of the mode behavior of phonons in wurtzite crystals.
