Raman Spectra of Crystalline Nanoparticles: Replacement for the Phonon Confinement Model
In crystalline nanoparticles, the Raman peak is downshifted with respect to the bulk material and has asymmetric broadening. These effects are straightly related to the finite size of nanoparticles,
Raman Spectra of Nonpolar Crystalline Nanoparticles: Elasticity Theory-like Approach for Optical Phonons
A simple way to investigate theoretically the Raman spectra (RS) of nonpolar nanoparticles is proposed. For this aim, we substitute the original lattice optical phonon eigenproblem by the continuous
Influence of geometry of nanocrystals on the Raman spectra
It is shown that Raman spectra of nanocrystals with complex geometric shape can acquire additional broadening. In order to describe complex geometric shapes of nanocrystals in terms of its influence

Stress evolution of Ge nanocrystals in dielectric matrices.
It is demonstrated that it is possible to tune the stress state of Ge NCs from compressive to tensile, a desirable property for optoelectronic applications and there is a correlation between the stress and the crystallization threshold in which the compressive stress enhances the crystallizations, while the tensile stress suppresses the process.
Diffusion of Overheated and Overcooled Particles as a Mechanism of Thermal Conductivity in Nanofluids
A new mechanism of heat transfer in nanofluids is proposed on the basis of two physical principles: Brownian motion of particles in a fluid and thermal resistance of a particle—fluid interface. Owing
Residual stresses in additively manufactured AlSi10Mg: Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis
Abstract Metal parts produced by Additive Manufacturing, and in particular Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), suffer from residual stresses due to high thermal gradients causing cyclic expansion and


Within the framework of a partial-density approach, the confinement of vibrations in spherical Si nanocrystals is studied and the Raman frequency shifts of Si spheres with different sizes are derived
Phonon mode study of Si nanocrystals using micro‐Raman spectroscopy
First‐order Raman spectra of hydrogenated nanocrystalline silicon (nc:Si:H) films show unexpected features in their optical vibrational modes for crystallites with sizes ranging from 2 to 6 nm. Two
Raman, optical‐absorption, and transmission electron microscopy study of size effects in germanium quantum dots
Quantum confinement effects in Ge nanocrystals in the size range 26–130 A have been investigated both on the electronic joint density of states and Raman spectra. The high degree of crystallinity of
The effects of microcrystal size and shape on the one phonon Raman spectra of crystalline semiconductors
Abstract Small physical dimensions of the scattering crystals lead to a downshift and broadening of the first order Raman line through a relaxation of the q = 0 selection rule. We consider the effect
Growth of Ge Microcrystals in SiO 2 Thin Film Matrices: A Raman and Electron Microscopic Study
The growth of Ge microcrystals in SiO2-Ge mixture films prepared by an rf co-sputtering method was studied by Raman spectroscopy and electron microscopy. It was found that in the as-deposited films,
Molecular dynamics-based refinement of nanodiamond size measurements obtained with dynamic light scattering
The determination of particle size by dynamic light scattering uses the Stokes–Einstein relation, which can break down for nanoscale objects. Here, we employ a molecular dynamics simulation of fully
Spatially resolved Raman studies of diamond films grown by chemical vapor deposition.
The frequency and line shape of the diamond Raman line are examined in detail for a series of microwave-plasma-assisted chemical-vapor-deposition films grown on Si and it is concluded that the observed shifts do notmore arise from phonon confinement alone and arise primarily from compressive stress.
Diamond-graphite phase transition in ultradisperse-diamond clusters
A systematic study of the diamond-graphite structural phase transition in ultradisperse-diamond clusters obtained by the detonation technique is reported. Samples of two types, differing in the
Phonon confinement and laser heating effects in Germanium nanowires
We explore the combined effects of phonon confinement and local heating caused by laser beam absorption on the Raman spectra of Germanium nanowires of different diameters
