Abstract: Raman scattering under hydrostatic pressure is used to investigate the phonon modes of self-assembled Ge islands grown by solid source molecular beam epitaxy. Our results show that the overlapping spectra of the Ge-Ge phonon and Si 2TA modes occur around 304 cm -1 at ambient pressure can be resolved at relatively low pressure of about 3 kbar. The mode Grüneisen parameter of the Ge-Ge phonon mode in quantum dot is found to be γ = 0.84 ± 0.01. The normalized Raman intensity profiles of Ge-Ge mode, exhibits a resonance enhancement peak at 2.37 eV. The pressure coefficient of this resonating electronic transition is ∼2.7 ± 0.5 meV/kbar, which is significantly smaller than the pressure shift of the E 1 transition in bulk Ge. © 2004 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
