Abstract

The assessment of the magnetic properties in epitaxial semiconductor nanostructures is intended with this work, more specifically self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs) doped with electrons and magnetic impurities. This project defines a new research line at DFMC/IFUSP devoted to the study of the spin dynamics for carriers confined in nanostructures. The considered experiments intent to use time-resolved magneto-optical spectroscopy (Kerr and Faraday effect TRKR/TRFR) and optical continuous-wave measurements (photoluminescence PL and excitation photoluminescence PLE), complemented with electric measurements (capacitance-voltage C-V, current-voltage I-V, Hall effect and Shubnikov de Haas). With the acquisition of the requested equipment, the implementation of these techniques will allow the study of basic parameters for the practical implementation of spintronic devices in solid state. Specifically, the project involves aspects of great interest: a) study of the electronic spin polarization dynamics for different loading conditions in semiconductor InAs/GaAs and InP/GaAs quantum dots and AlGaAs wells, b) study of the magnetic impurities (Mn) in the optic properties of quantum dots and through the mapping of the Landé g-factor measured by capacitance-voltage.
