(a) The transmission signal from the Bi nanowires on a glass substrate showing oscillations (curve A) and the signal from a bare substrate (curve B, exhibiting no such oscillations); the laser fluence was . The inset shows the oscillating contribution to signal A with a fit shown by a dotted line. (b) The spectrum of the oscillating part of signal A, showing a broad peak around 2.2 THz.

FIG. 3.

Transient signals of scattered light from Bi nanowires at a relatively low pump fluence of : (a) the temporal response is shown. For curve A the resolution, determined by the translational speed of the delay line, was set to , and in this case acoustic phonons were detected. For curve B (inset) the resolution was set to ; this higher temporal resolution revealed the coherent optical phonon oscillations. (b) Spectral analysis of the oscillating portions of signals A and B: two spectral peaks are observed with maxima at and .
