Abstract [en]

The issues of generating and maintaining carrier spin polarization in semiconductors have attracted intense research efforts, not only due to their importance for future applications in spintronics but also due to the intriguing physics underpinning spin-dependent phenomena. Entering the family of semiconductors that exhibit attractive spin-dependent properties, Ga(In)NAs was most recently found to exhibit strong spin polarization of conducting electrons at room temperature upon N incorporation with an extremely long apparent spin lifetime. In this work we have uncovered the origin of the astonishing effect as being due to strong spin dependent recombination (SDR) via defects, by a combination of optical orientation and optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) studies. We were able to identify Ga self-interstitials and an As antisite complex to be the dominant defects participating in the SDR process. The involvement of these defects were unambiguously established by their unique spin-resonance signatures derived from the hyperfine interaction between the localized unpaired electron spin and nuclear spins (I=3/2) of the As and Ga atom - the core of the defects. These defects dominate in carrier capture and recombination leading to the observed strong dynamic polarization of electron spins. Further confirmation was found by the effects of growth conditions and post-growth treatments on the defect density that were closely correlated with the electron spin polarization.
