Аннотация

The spin orientation dynamics in a GaAs quantum well with a laterally nonuniform electric potential generated by a mosaic electrode deposited on the surface of the sample has been investigated using the photoinduced magneto-optical Kerr effect. It has been found that the application of a negative potential higher than 1 V to the electrode leads to more than a hundredfold increase in the spin polarization lifetime in the sample under study. It is concluded that so strong slowing down of the relaxation is caused by a combined action of two effects, namely, the spatial separation of electron and hole, which reduces the radiative recombination rate of electron-hole pair, and the localization of electron, which is accompanied by the suppression of spin relaxation processes caused by electron motion.
