Project C1

Spin-Dependent Properties of III-Nitride Nano-Heterostructures

The goal of this project is to design, fabricate and study novel magnetic hybrid nanostructures combining II-VI diluted magnetic semiconductors like (Zn,Cd,Mn)/(Se,S,Te) and III-V semiconductors like (Al,Ga,In,Mn)/As. The focus will be on the development of heterovalent heterostructures, including quantum wells and dots, with coherent III-V/II-VI interfaces, taking advantage of the unlimited solubility of Mn-ions in the II-VI compounds and the excellent charge and spin properties of the nonmagnetic III-V compounds. As a result, different spintronic functions will be implemented in the heterovalent structures, including electrical and optical control over spin polarization, spin coherence, and spin ordering.
