Abstract

Longitudinal optical phonons in InN have been studied by time-resolved Raman spectroscopy on a subpicosecond time scale. The lifetimes of both the A1(LO) and E1(LO) phonons have been directly measured. From the temperature dependence of their lifetimes, the authors demonstrate that both phonons decay primarily into a large wave vector TO phonon and a large wave vector TA/LA phonon, consistent with the accepted phonon dispersion relationship for wurtzite InN.
