The optical, structural, and thermodynamic properties of materials can be changed by reducing their dimensions. We sequentially implanted In and As into fused silica windows in order to investigate the formation and properties of InAs nano-particles. The UV/VIS/NIR, FTIR in mid-IR, and far-IR spectroscopy were mainly used to study the change in electronic transitions and in vibrational modes (phonons) of the nanoparticle InAs. The phonons can be confined to the surface of nanoparticles and have frequencies falling between the transverse and longitudinal optical modes of the bulk material. Thermal annealing developed the formation of InAs quantum dots from as-implanted In+As system. At a certain annealing temperature, we observed a change in UV/VIS transmission spectra and IR reflectance spectra indicating the formation of InAs quantum dots. This is particularly evident from the absorption in the IR, and surface phonon bands are observed confirming the presence of quantum confined InAs.
