Abstract

Coherent Zeeman resonance from electron spin coherence is demonstrated in a Λ-type three-level system, coupling electron spin states via trions. The optical control of electron density that is characteristic of a mixed-type quantum-well facilitates the study of trion formation as well as the effects of many-body interactions on the manifestation of electron spin coherence in the nonlinear optical response.

Asymmetry in the DT signal is due to the nonuniformity of the magnetic field lines produced by the permanent magnet used in the experiment.

Schematics of (a) the mixed-type Ga As Al As QW structure and (b) a Λ-type three-level system formed by spin-up and spin-down electron states coupled to a common trion state when the MTQW is placed in an external magnetic field in the Voigt geometry. The trion state is labeled by J z of the hole. 1 Å = 0.1 nm .

(a) PL spectra when the sample is excited individually by a laser beam at 1.54 eV with I = 2 W cm 2 (dotted curve) and by a green injection beam at 2.33 eV with I = 0.5 W cm 2 (dashed curve). Solid curves are PL spectra when the sample is simultaneously excited by both laser beams. From darkest to lightest curves, the intensities of the green injection beam are I = 2 , 1, and 0.5 mW cm 2 . The laser beam at 1.54 eV was held at I = 2 W cm 2 . (b) Temperature dependence of the PL spectra when the sample is simultaneously excited by both laser beams, the green injection beam at 0.5 mW cm 2 and the 1.54 eV beam at 0.5 W cm 2 . From darkest to lightest curves, measurements were taken at 4, 7, 9, and 13 K . (c) The black curve shows the linear absorption spectrum at T = 10 K with heavy hole (HH) exciton, light hole (LH) exciton, and trion resonances labeled. The dashed curve shows linear absorption when the sample is excited by a green injection beam of I = 0.05 mW cm 2 . The gray curve shows the CZR amplitude (right axis) extracted from a series of DT responses as a function of the pump energy.

(a) DT responses obtained at B = 0.3 T and T = 10 K , with the pump energy placed at trion absorption resonance, shown by the arrow in Fig. 2c. The inset shows the theoretical calculation of the DT response as discussed in the text. (b) DT responses are shown with increasing green injection beam intensity, from darkest to lightest curves, I = 0 , 0.05, 0.1, and 0.5 mW cm 2 .
