Control and Probe of Carrier and Spin Relaxations in InSb Based Structures
Narrow gap semiconductors (NGS) offer several scientifically unique features important for the field of spintronics. In order to explore these features we are using standard pump-probe and magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) spectroscopy at different excitation wavelengths, power densities, and temperatures. Our goal is measuring and controlling carrier/spin relaxation in a series of InSb-based quantum wells and films, and InMnSb ferromagnetic films. The dynamic effects observed in these structures demonstrate strong dependence on the photo-induced carrier density.
