# Inelastic electron and light scattering from the elementary electronic excitations in quantum wells: Zero magnetic field

@article{Kushwaha2012InelasticEA, title={Inelastic electron and light scattering from the elementary electronic excitations in quantum wells: Zero magnetic field}, author={Manvir S. Kushwaha}, journal={AIP Advances}, year={2012}, volume={2}, pages={032104} }

The most fundamental approach to an understanding of electronic, optical, and transport phenomena which the condensed matter physics (of conventional as well as nonconventional systems) offers is generally founded on two experiments: the inelastic electron scattering and the inelastic light scattering. This work embarks on providing a systematic framework for the theory of inelastic electron scattering and of inelastic light scattering from the electronic excitations in GaAs/Ga1−x Al x As…
