Phonon structure of amorphous germanium by inelastic electron tunnelling spectroscopy


Measurements of inelastic electron tunnelling through barriers of amorphous germanium are reported. The data are analysed using a theory of the electron-phonon interaction which includes phonon correlations. The vibrational density of states obtained from the experimental data is in agreement with that expected for amorphous germanium containing a broad… (More)
