It is demonstrated theoretically that, while the frequency of confined polar optical phonons in zinc-blende nanocrystals is equal to that of the bulk crystal phonons, the confined polar optical phonons in wurtzite nanocrystals have a discrete spectrum of frequencies different from those of the bulk crystal. The calculated frequencies of confined polar optical phonons in wurtzite ZnO nanocrystals are found to be in an excellent agreement with the experimental resonant Raman-scattering spectra of spherical ZnO quantum dots 关键词: crystal structure;II-VI semiconductors;interface phonons;nanostructured materials;semiconductor quantum dots;wide band gap semiconductors;zinc compounds;interfacial optical phonons;confined optical phonons;wurtzite nanocrystals;dielectric-continuum model;zinc-blende nanocrystals;resonant Raman-scattering spectra;ZnO quantum dots;ZnO
