Measurement of the Dresselhaus and Rashba Spin-Orbit Coupling Via Weak Anti-Localization in InSb Quantum Wells
Weak anti-localization has been observed in the magneto-resistance of both symmetrically and asymmetrically doped InSb/AlInSb quantum wells. We find that for both types of structures, the magnetic field corresponding to the conductance minimum is in good agreement with the dominant spin-orbit term, which is the cubic Dresselhaus and Rashba terms for symmetric and asymmetric samples, respectively.
