Abstract

The behavior of the E2 and A1(LO) optical phonons in Inx Ga1-x N has been analyzed by Raman scattering over the whole composition range. The frequencies of the E2 and A1(LO) modes decrease with increasing InN fraction. These modes display a significant broadening for an InN fraction of ≈ 60% and their linewidth decreases towards both ends of the composition range as a consequence of reduced cation disorder. Our results show a one-mode behavior for both E2 and A1(LO) modes of InGaN.
