Brillouin Spectra of Porous p-Type 6H-SiC


Article Preview

Brillouin spectra have been recorded for a series of supported films of p-type porous 6H-SiC with a branched morphology and porosities in the range from 30% to 58%. Complex spectra comprising up to 7 identifiable components were observed in some cases. An effective medium model is being developed as an aid in interpreting the spectra, and preliminary results are presented.
