Abstract

We have revisited the still unresolved puzzle of the dispersion of the Raman disorder-induced $D$ band as a function of laser excitation photon energy $E_L$ in graphite-like materials. We propose that the $D$ mode is a combination of an optic phonon at the $K$ point in the Brillioun zone and an acoustic phonon whose momentum is determined uniquely by the double resonance condition. The fit of the experimental data with the double-resonance model yields the reduced effective mass of $0.025 m_e$ for the electron-hole pairs corresponding to the $A_2$ transition, in agreement with other experiments. The model can also explain the difference between $\omega_S$ and $\omega_{AS}$ for D and $D^\star$ modes, and predicts its dependence on the Raman excitation frequency.
