Paper Abstract

By using a frequency-controlled narrow band THz source, a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy system, and a frequency-controlled terahertz (THz) emitter, for the first time, we studied the THz photon absorption related to the THz confined acoustic vibrations in semiconductor nanocrystals. Through a specific charge separation in the CdSe/CdTe type-II nanocrystals and a piezoelectric coupling in the wurtzite CdSe nanocrystals, the THz photons can be resonantly coupled with (l=1) dipolar modes and the (l=0) breathing modes, respectively. Our results provide new mechanisms for low dimensional systems to convert a THz photon into a phonon of the same frequency.
