Theory of electron–phonon dynamics in insulating nanoparticles
2002 (English)In: Physica. B, Condensed matter, ISSN 0921-4526, Vol. 316-317, 430-433 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We discuss the rich vibrational dynamics of nanometer-scale semiconducting and insulating crystals as probed by localized electronic impurity states, with an emphasis on nanoparticles that are only weakly coupled to their environment. Two principal regimes of electron--phonon dynamics are distinguished, and a brief survey of vibrational-mode broadening mechanisms is presented. Recent work on the effects of mechanical interaction with the environment is discussed.
