Abstract:

The transverse relaxation time T2 of the Mn spins has been measured by time resolved photo induced Kerr rotation in n-type and p-type CdMnTe quantum wells with a magnetic field applied parallel to the quantum well plane. The dependencies of T2 on the magnetic field and on the carrier density indicate the influence of carriers on T2. A model, akin to dielectric relaxation, is proposed to explain qualitatively these results.
