Weak Antilocalization in Quantum Wells
Languages of publication
Spin relaxation in degenerated two-dimensional (2D) electron gas is studied by measurements of the magnetic field dependence of the weak antilocalization corrections to the conductivity in GaInAs quantum wells. Consistent quantitative (up to order of magnitude) description of weak antilocalization data on GaAs like heterojunctions and quantum wells was obtained. Our results show that spin precession around the effective magnetic field direction as described by the Dyakonov-Perel model is the main spin relaxation mechanism in degenerated 2D electron gas in semiconductors with no inversion symmetry.
