Abstract : During this research effort, numerous interactions of confined phonons in nanostructures have been modelled theoretically; these include: piezoelectric scattering in cylindrical quantum wires; generalized piezoelectric scattering rate for elections in a two-dimensional election gas; Gamma-X transitions driven by interface phonons; interface optical modes in cylindrical quantum wires; microscopic model for election-optical-phonon interactions in quantum wells; optical phonons in quantum dots; electron-acoustic-phonon scattering in both rectangular and cylindrical quantum wires; and acoustic modes in quantum wires and dots.
