Two-dimensional electron systems embedded in (110)-grown, symmetrically doped GaAs/AlGaAs QWs are highly interesting for spintronics. They combine high carrier mobility with long spin dephasing times. Previously, we have studied these systems in different experiments, which either gave temporal or spatial resolution. By using a two-beam Hanle-MOKE method we could observe diffusion lengths of more than 125 µm at low temperatures. As a next step, the experimental setup was modified in order to achieve temporal and spatial resolution with the help of a single pulsed TiSa laser. The main issue is the spectral separation of the pump and the probe beams, which are collinearly focused onto the sample. Due to the broad spectrum of the femtosecond laser pulse, this can be realized using bandpass filters. Besides the mapping of the temporal propagation of the spins via diffusion, this experimental setup should also allow to visualize the evolution of a drifting spin packet.
