We study the collective excitation modes of coupled quasi-one-dimensional electron gas and longitudinal-optical phonons in GaInAs quantum wires within the random-phase approximation. In contrast to the higher-dimensional systems, the plasmon-phonon coupling is found to be strong at all Linear carrier densities of interest. We calculate the oscillator strength of the numerically evaluated coupled modes and the Raman scattering intensity. The effect of phenomenological LO-phonon broadening on the collective excitation spectrum is also investigated. (C) 1996 American Institute of Physics.
