We report Raman scattering from CdSe/ZnSe self-assembled quantum dot structures. A series of samples, each with a different growth-interruption time before ZnSe caping of the CdSe dots, is investigated. ZnSe longitudinal optical (LO) phonon shifts as a function of the interruption time show a complex pattern due to the evolution of CdSe dots. We observe an LO phonon from the CdSe dots at ∼221 cm-1 as well as an interface phonon at ∼245 cm-1. We present evidence that the interface phonon is localized at the interface between the CdSe dots and the ZnSe cap layer.
