Abstract

By considering that the implanted ions in a group-IV semiconductor agglomerate to form nanoclusters (NCs) and some of them acquire negative charge, we present an analytical study on excitation and propagation of Alfven wave (AW). Using multi-fluid analysis and Maxwell's equations, a linear dispersion relation for the AW in a semiconductor plasma has been derived. The presence of charged NCs is shown to split the waves into two components and significantly modifying their dispersion and absorption characteristics by creating a charge imbalance in the semiconductor plasma. The NCs, on account of their heavy masses, are assumed to be stationary in the background.
