Project B2

Raman Spectroscopy of Semiconductors

The project focuses on characterization of spin level structures and spin-based interactions of neutral and charged exciton complexes in magnetic and nonmagnetic semiconductor nanostructures as well as hybrid semiconductor/ferromagnet structures. Carrier-carrier exchange interactions and carrier-nuclear hyperfine interactions will be studied by resonant spin-flip Raman scattering. Symmetry dependences will be examined either by external strain application or via changing the internal strain in quantum dots with different annealing, thus providing novel insights into scattering mechanisms and their efficiencies.
