Hybrid Phonons in Nanostructures

Oxford University Press

Hybrid modes exist as a consequence of acoustic and optical waves having to satisfy the boundary conditions at an interface or at a surface. The author begins the description of hybrid modes in nanostructures with an account of modes in a non-polar, free-standing slab. This chapter includes long-wavelength assumption decouples acoustic and optical modes; isotropy decouples LO and TO modes; s and p modes; acoustic hybrid modes: Love waves, Lamb waves, guided modes, Rayleigh waves; the boundary condition u = 0 for optical modes; the sTO mode; double hybrid: LO and pTO modes; and energy normalization.

Keywords:   acoustic modes, optical modes, hybrid modes, Rayleigh waves, energy normalization, boundary conditions, slab, nanostructures
