Using Raman spectroscopy we have investigated the spacing or the electron subbands in nominally delta-doped GaAs structures which show a considerable spread of the silicon dopant atoms along the growth direction. For optical excitation in resonance with the E sub 0 and Delta sub 0 band gap, spin-density intersubband excitations are observed. For excitation in resonance with the E sub 1 band gap we find a strong enhancement of scattering by collective intersubband plasmon-phonon modes. The measured energy spacings between the electron subbands deviate significantly from what is expected for ideal delta doping. Self-consistent electronic subband calculations taking into account the spread of the dopant atoms along the growth direction, in contrast, yield a good quantitative agreement between calculated and measured subband spacings. This demonstrates the potential of intersubband Raman spectroscopy for the analysis of the spatial localization of dopant atoms in delta-doped structures.
