Hole g-factor anisotropy in coupled GaAs/AlAs quantum wells — •Christian Gradl, Michael Kempf, Dieter Schuh, Dominique Bougeard, Christian Schüller, and Tobias Korn — Universität Regensburg, D-93040 Regensburg, Germany
We performed time-resolved Kerr rotation measurements on undoped - and -grown double quantum well (QW) structures to resolve the spin dynamics of hole ensembles at low temperatures. For these growth directions, a strong anisotropy of the hole g-factor with respect to the in-plane magnetic field direction is theoretically predicted.
Our gated system consists of two QWs with different well widths, which we use for the spatial separation of the optically excited electron-hole pairs. Thus, we are able to create hole ensembles with spin lifetimes of several hundreds of picoseconds in the broader QW without any doping. This also allowed an observation of a strong hole g-factor anisotropy by varying the magnetic field direction in the QW plane. Moreover, our extracted values are in a very good agreement with theoretical predictions.
