Abstract

We have used Resonant Raman scattering induced by pressure tuning to study the phase transition and electronic states of bulk and 60±20 Å colloidal microcrystallite CdS. The experimental results show that bulk CdS undergoes a well-defined first order phase transition at 27 kbar and that the intensity of the Raman scattering increases sharply when the level of the intermediate state (bound exciton I2) is close to the photon energy. After the phase transition no Raman scattering and photoluminescence can be observed. However, the phase transition in the colloidal CdS is quite different from the bulk CdS and the complete phase transition occurs above 60 kbar. Both bulk and colloidal CdS reverse to the original wurtzite phase after releasing the pressure.

13. The intensity was scaled by simultaneously measuring the first order intensity from a crystalline Si substrate, normalizing the Si intensity to its known Raman cross-section(11), and dividing this into the measured CdS intensity. This removes w 4 power differences, and volume effects from the excitation spectrum.
