We report on a study of spin-dependent recombination processes (SDR) for conduction band electrons on deep paramagnetic centers in a series of GaAs1-yNy epilayers by time-resolved optical orientation experiments. We demonstrate that this dilute nitride compound can be used as an effective electron spin filter under a polarized optical excitation of appropriate intensity. This optimum intensity can moreover be controlled by adjusting the nitrogen composition in the layer.
