AbstractWe have studied the longitudinal-optical LO -phonon–plasmon coupled modes in high-mobility InN layers with free-electron densities ranging from 2.3 1018 to 1.6 1019 cm−3 by means of Raman scattering. The observed L− coupled-mode peak displays the usual behavior for the low energy branch of the long-wavelength coupled modes, increasing in frequency and phononlike character as the electron density increases. The L− mode behavior can be satisfactorily explained by the standard dielectric model developed by Hon and Faust which takes into account wave-vector conserving scattering processes governed by the dipole-allowed deformation potential and electro-optic mechanisms. The free-electron density obtained from line-shape fits to the L− peak agrees well with Hall-effect measurements. The E2 high mode shifts to lower frequencies as the electron density increases, suggesting that strain relaxation has a bearing on the residual electron density in the InN layers. The L− frequency exhibits also a dependence on the excitation wave vector, which further indicates that wave-vector conserving scattering by LO-phonon–plasmon coupled modes takes place in these high-mobility samples. The presence of a relatively strong LO signal is attributed to surface-field-induced scattering in the accumulation region.
