Temperature dependence of dynamic nuclear polarization and its effect on electron spin relaxation and dephasing in InAs/GaAs quantum dots2012In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 100, no 14, p. 143105-Article in journal (Refereed)

Electron spin dephasing and relaxation due to hyperfine interaction with nuclear spins is studied in an InAs/GaAs quantum dot ensemble as a function of temperature up to 85 K, in an applied longitudinal magnetic field. The extent of hyperfineinduced dephasing is found to decrease, whereas dynamic nuclear polarization increases with increasing temperature. We attribute both effects to an accelerating electron spin relaxation through phonon-assisted electron-nuclear spin flip-flops driven by hyperfine interactions, which could become the dominating contribution to electron spin depolarization at high temperatures.

Exciton Fine-Structure Splitting in Self-Assembled Lateral InAs/GaAs Quantum-Dot Molecular Structures2015In: ACS Nano, ISSN 1936-0851, E-ISSN 1936-086X, Vol. 9, no 6, p. 5741-5749Article in journal (Refereed)

Fine-structure splitting (FSS) of excitons in semiconductor nanostructures is a key parameter that has significant implications in photon entanglement and polarization conversion between electron spins and photons, relevant to quantum information technology and spintronics. Here, we investigate exciton FSS in self-organized lateral InAs/GaAs quantum-dot molecular structures (QMSs) including laterally aligned double quantum dots (DQDs), quantum-dot clusters (QCs), and quantum rings (QRs), by employing polarization-resolved microphotoluminescence (μPL) spectroscopy. We find a clear trend in FSS between the studied QMSs depending on their geometric arrangements, from a large FSS in the DQDs to a smaller FSS in the QCs and QRs. This trend is accompanied by a corresponding difference in the optical polarization directions of the excitons between these QMSs, namely, the bright-exciton lines are linearly polarized preferably along or perpendicular to the [11̅0] crystallographic axis in the DQDs that also defines the alignment direction of the two constituting QDs, whereas in the QCs and QRs, the polarization directions are randomly oriented. We attribute the observed trend in the FSS to a significant reduction of the asymmetry in the lateral confinement potential of the excitons in the QRs and QCs as compared with the DQDs, as a result of a compensation between the effects of lateral shape anisotropy and piezoelectric field. Our work demonstrates that FSS strongly depends on the geometric arrangements of the QMSs, which effectively tune the degree of the compensation effects and are capable of reducing FSS even in a strained QD system to a limit similar to strain-free QDs. This approach provides a pathway in obtaining high-symmetry quantum emitters desirable for realizing photon entanglement and spintronic devices based on such nanostructures, utilizing an uninterrupted epitaxial growth procedure without special requirements for lattice-matched materials combinations, specific substrate orientations, and nanolithography.

Control of exciton fine-structure splitting in geometrically engineered self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum molecular structuresManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)

Fine-structure splitting (FSS) of excitons in semiconductor nanostructures is a key parameter that has significant implications in photon entanglement and polarization conversion between electron spins and photons, relevant to quantum information technology and spintronics. Here, we investigate exciton FSS in self-organized InAs/GaAs quantum molecular structures (QMSs) including laterally-aligned double quantum dots (DQDs), quantum-dot clusters (QCs) and quantum rings (QRs), by employing polarization-resolved micro-photoluminescence spectroscopy. We find a clear trend in FSS between the studied QMSs depending on their geometric arrangements, from a large FSS in the DQDs to a smaller FSS in the QCs and QRs with an overall higher geometric symmetry. This trend is accompanied by a corresponding difference in the optical polarization directions of the excitons between these QMSs, namely, the bright-exciton lines are linearly polarized preferably along or perpendicular to the [11̅0] crystallographic axis in the DQDs that also defines the alignment of the two constituting QDs, whereas in the QCs and QRs the polarization directions are randomly oriented. We attribute the observed trends in the FSS to a significant reduction of the anisotropic strain field in the high symmetry QCRs and QCs as compared with the low-symmetry  DQDs. Our work demonstrates that FSS can be effectively controlled by geometric engineering of the QMSs, capable of reducing FSS even in a strained QD system to a limit similar to strain-free QDs. This approach provides a new pathway in obtaining high-symmetry quantum emitters desirable for realizing photon entanglement and spintronic devices based on such nanostructures, without special requirements for lattice-matched materials combinations, specific substrate orientations and nanolithography.

Effect of Side Groups on the Photovoltaic Performance Based on Porphyrin-Perylene Bisimide Electron Acceptors2018In: ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, ISSN 1944-8244, E-ISSN 1944-8252, Vol. 10, no 38, p. 32454-32461Article in journal (Refereed)

In this work, we developed four porphyrin-based small molecular electron acceptors for non-fullerene organic solar cells, in which different side groups attached to the porphyrin core were selected in order to achieve optimized performance. The molecules contain porphyrin as the core, perylene bisimides as end groups, and the ethynyl unit as the linker. Four side groups, from 2,6-di(dodecyloxy)phenyl to (2-ethylhexyl)thiophen-2-yl, pentadecan-7-yl, and 3,5-di(dodecyloxy)phenyl unit, were applied into the electron acceptors. The new molecules exhibit broad absorption spectra from 300 to 900 nm and high molar extinction coefficients. The molecules as electron acceptors were applied into organic solar cells, showing increased power conversion efficiencies from 1.84 to 5.34%. We employed several techniques, including photoluminescence spectra, electroluminescence spectra, atomic force microscopy, and grazing-incidence wide-angle X-ray to probe the blends to find the effects of the side groups on the photovoltaic properties. We found that the electron acceptors with 2,6-di(dodecyloxy)phenyl units show high-lying frontier energy levels, good crystalline properties, and low nonradiative recombination loss, resulting in possible large phase separation and low energy loss, which is responsible for the low performance. Our results provide a detailed study about the side groups of non-fullerene materials, demonstrating that porphyrin can be used to design electron acceptors toward near-infrared absorption.

Spin injection loss in self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dot structures from disordered barrier layers2016In: 2016 IEEE 16TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NANOTECHNOLOGY (IEEE-NANO), IEEE , 2016, p. 627-629Conference paper (Refereed)

Semiconductor quantum dot (QD) structures are considered as promising building block for spintronic applications with the advantage of prolonged spin relaxation time owing to 0D character of confined carriers or excitons. However, feasible application is haunted by severe spin injection loss from its adjacent barrier layers and its mechanism is still not fully understood. Here, we show that exciton spin injection in self-assembled InAs/GaAs QD molecular structures (QMSs) is dominated by localized excitons confined within the QD-like regions of the wetting layer (WL) and GaAs barrier layer surrounding QD structures. The origin of spin injection loss is attribute to finite anisotropic exchange interaction (AEI) of the localized excitons subjected to asymmetric confinement potential in the injection layers. As a result, the AEI of the injected excitons and, thus, the spin injection efficiency is determined to be correlated with the overall geometric symmetry of QMSs, which hold strong influence on the confinement potential of the localized excitons in the surrounding barrier layers. Our results shed light on the microscopic origin of the spin injection loss in QD structures. More importantly, they offer a useful guideline to significantly improve spin injection efficiency by optimizing the lateral arrangement of QMSs and overcome a major challenge in the QD based spintronic device applications.

Size dependence of electron spin dephasing in InGaAs quantum dots2015In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 106, no 9, p. 093109-Article in journal (Refereed)

We investigate ensemble electron spin dephasing in self-assembled InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) of different lateral sizes by employing optical Hanle measurements. Using low excitation power, we are able to obtain a spin dephasing time T-2* (in the order of ns) of the resident electron after recombination of negative trions in the QDs. We show that T-2* is determined by the hyperfine field arising from the frozen fluctuation of nuclear spins, which scales with the size of QDs following the Merkulov-Efros-Rosen model. This scaling no longer holds in large QDs, most likely due to a breakdown in the lateral electron confinement. (C) 2015 AIP Publishing LLC.

Understanding and optimizing spin injection in self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum-dot molecular structures2016In: Nano Reseach, ISSN 1998-0124, E-ISSN 1998-0000, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 602-611Article in journal (Refereed)

Semiconductor quantum-dot (QD) structures are promising for spintronic applications owing to strong quenching of spin relaxation processes promoted by carrier and excitons motions. Unfortunately, spin injection efficiency in such nanostructures remains very low and the exact physical mechanism for the spin loss is still not fully understood. Here, we show that exciton spin injection in self-assembled InAs/GaAs QDs and quantum-dot molecular structures (QMSs) is dominated by localized excitons confined within the QD-like regions of the wetting layer (WL) and GaAs barrier layer immediately surrounding QDs and QMSs that in fact lack the commonly believed 2D and 3D character with an extended wavefunction. We identify the microscopic origin of the observed severe spin loss during spin injection as being due to a sizable anisotropic exchange interaction (AEI) of the localized excitons in the WL and GaAs barrier layer, which has so far been overlooked. We find that the AEI of the injected excitons and thus the efficiency of the spin injection processes are correlated with the overall geometric symmetry of the QMSs, as the latter largely defines the anisotropy of the confinement potential of the localized excitons in the surrounding WL and GaAs barrier. These results pave the way for a better understanding of spin injection processes and the microscopic origin of spin loss in QD structures, which in turn provides a useful guideline to significantly improve spin injection efficiency by optimizing the lateral arrangement of the QMSs thereby overcoming a major bottleneck in spintronic device applications utilizing semiconductor QDs.

Room-temperature defect-engineered spin functionalities in Ga(In)NAs alloys2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)

Semiconductor spintronics is one of the most interesting research fields that exploits both charge and spin properties for future photonics and electronic devices. Among many challenges of using spin in semiconductors, efficient generation of electron spin polarization at room temperature (RT) remains difficult. Recently, a new approach using defect-mediated spin filtering effect, employing $Ga_{i}^2^+$-interstitial defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys, has been shown to turn the material into an efficient spin-polarized source capable of generating >40% conduction electron spin polarization at RT without an application of external fields. In order to fully explore the defectengineered spin functionalities, a better understanding and control of the spin filtering effects is required. This thesis work thus aims to advance our understanding, in terms of both physical and material insights, of the recently discovered spin filtering defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys. We have focused on the important issues of optimization and applications of the spin filtering effects.

To improve spin filtering efficiency, important material and defect parameters must be addressed. Therefore, in Papers I–III formation of the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys has been examined under different growth and post-growth treatment conditions, as well as in different structures. We found that the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects were the dominant and important nonradiative recombination centers in Ga(In)NAs epilayers and GaNAs/GaAs multiple quantum wells, independent of growth conditions and post-growth annealing. However, by varying growth and post-growth conditions, up to four configurations of the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects, exhibiting different hyperfine  interaction (HFI) strengths between defect electron and nuclear (e-n) spins, have been found. This difference was attributed to different interstitial sites and/or complexes of $Ga_{i}^2^+$ . Further studiesfocused on the effect of post-growth hydrogen (H) irradiation on the spin filtering effect. Beside the roles of H passivation of N resulting in bandgap reopening of the alloys, H treatment was shown to lead to complete quenching of the spin filtering effect, accompanied by strong suppression in the concentrations of the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects. We concluded that the observed effect was due to the passivation of the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects by H, most probably due to the formation of H-$Ga_{i}^2^+$ complexes.

Optimizing spin filtering efficiency also requires detailed knowledge of spin interactions at the defect centers. This issue was addressed in Papers IV and V. From both experimental and theoretical studies, we were able to conclude that the HFI between e-n spins at the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects led to e-n spin mixing, which degraded spin filtering efficiency at zero field.  Moreover, we have identified the microscopic origin of electron spin relaxation (T1) at the defect centers, that is, hyperfine-induced e-n spin cross-relaxation. Our finding thus provided a guideline to improve spin filtering efficiency by selectively incorporating the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects with weak HFI by optimizing growth and post-growth treatment conditions, or by searching for new spin filtering defect centers containing zero nuclear spin.

The implementation of the defect-engineered spin filtering effect has been addressed in Papers VI–VIII. First, we experimentally demonstrated for the first time at RT an efficient electron spin amplifier employing the $Ga_{i}^2^+$ defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys, capable of amplifying a weak spin signal up to 27 times with a high cut-off frequency of 1 GHz. We further showed that the defectmediated spin amplification effect could turn the GaNAs alloy into an efficient RT optical spin detector. This enabled us to reliably conduct in-depth spin injection studies across a semiconductor heterointerface at RT. We found a strong reduction of electron spin polarization after optical spin injection from a GaAs layer into an adjacent GaNAs layer. This observation was attributed to severe spin loss across the heterointerface due to structural inversion asymmetry and probably also interfacial point defects.

Finally, we went beyond the generation of strongly polarized electron spins. In Paper IX we focused on an interesting aspect of using strongly polarized electron spins to induce strong nuclear spin polarization at RT, relevant to solid-state quantum computation using a defect nuclear spin of long spin memory as a quantum bit (qubit). By combining the spin filtering effect and the HFI, we obtained a sizeable nuclear spin polarization of ~15% at RT that could be sensed by conduction electrons. This demonstrated the feasibility of controlling defect nuclear spins via conduction electrons even at RT, the first case ever being demonstrated in a semiconductor.

Opticallydetected magnetic resonance measurements are carried out to study formationof Ga interstitial-related defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys. The defects, whichare among dominant nonradiative recombination centers that control carrier lifetimein Ga(In)NAs, are unambiguously proven to be common grown-in defectsin these alloys independent of the employed growth methods. Thedefects formation is suggested to become thermodynamically favorable because ofthe presence of nitrogen, possibly due to local strain compensation.

Effectiveness of the recently discovered defect-engineered spin-filtering effect is closely examined in GaNAs/GaAs multiquantum wells (QWs) as a function of QW width. In spite of narrow well widths of 3-9 nm, rather efficient spin filtering is achieved at room temperature. It leads to electron spin polarization larger than 18% and an increase in photoluminescence intensity by 65% in the 9 nm wide QWs. A weaker spin filtering effect is observed in the narrower QWs, mainly due to a reduced sheet concentration of spin-filtering defects (e.g., Ga-i interstitial defects).

Effects of hydrogen on the recently discovered defect-engineered spin filtering in GaNAs are investigated by optical spin orientation and optically detected magnetic resonance. Post-growth hydrogen treatments are shown to lead to nearly complete quenching of the room-temperature spin-filtering effect in both GaNAs epilayers and GaNAs/GaAs multiple quantum wells, accompanied by a reduction in concentrations of Ga(i) interstitial defects. Our finding provides strong evidence for efficient hydrogen passivation of these spin-filtering defects, likely via formation of complexes between Gai defects and hydrogen, as being responsible for the Observed strong suppression of the spin-filtering effect after the hydrogen treatments.

##### Abstract [en]

The effect of hyperfine interaction (HFI) on the recently discovered room-temperature defect-enabled spin-filtering effect in GaNAs alloys is investigated both experimentally and theoretically based on a spin Hamiltonian analysis. We provide direct experimental evidence that the HFI between the electron and nuclear spin of the central Ga atom of the spin-filtering defect, namely, the Ga-i interstitials, causes strong mixing of the electron spin states of the defect, thereby degrading the efficiency of the spin-filtering effect. We also show that the HFI-induced spin mixing can be suppressed by an application of a longitudinal magnetic field such that the electronic Zeeman interaction overcomes the HFI, leading to well-defined electron spin states beneficial to the spin-filtering effect. The results provide a guideline for further optimization of the defect-engineered spin-filtering effect. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.87.125202

##### Abstract [en]

We identify hyperfine-induced electron and nuclear spin cross-relaxation as the dominant physical mechanism for the longitudinal electron spin relaxation time (T-1) of the spin-filtering Ga-i(2+) defects in GaNAs alloys. This conclusion is based on our experimental findings that T-1 is insensitive to temperature over 4-300 K, and its exact value is directly correlated with the hyperfine coupling strength of the defects that varies between different configurations of the Ga-i(2+) defects present in the alloys. These results thus provide a guideline for further improvements of the spin-filtering efficiency by optimizing growth and processing conditions to preferably incorporate the Ga-i(2+) defects with a weak hyperfine interaction and by searching for new spin-filtering defects with zero nuclear spin.

Efficient and highly spin-dependent recombination processes are shown to not only turn GaNAs into an efficient spin filter but also to make it an excellent spin detector functional at room temperature (RT). By taking advantage of the defect-engineered spin-filtering effect, the spin detection efficiency is no longer limited by the fast spin relaxation of conduction electrons. This leads to a significant enhancement in the optical polarization of the spin detector, making it possible to reliably detect even very weak electron spin polarization at RT, as demonstrated by a study of spin loss during optical spin injection across a GaAs/GaNAs interface.

##### Abstract [en]

Recently discovered effect of spin-filtering and spin amplification in GaNAs enables us to reliably obtain detailed information on the degree of spin loss during optical spin injection across a semiconductor heterointerface at room temperature. Spin polarization of electrons injected from GaAs into GaNAs is found to be less than half of what is generated in GaNAs by optical orientation. We show that the observed reduced spin injection efficiency is not only due to spin relaxation in GaAs, but more importantly due to spin loss across the interface due to structural inversion asymmetry and probably also interfacial point defects.

##### Abstract [en]

Nuclear spin hyperpolarization is essential to future solid-state quantum computation using nuclear spin qubits and in highly sensitive magnetic resonance imaging. Though efficient dynamic nuclear polarization in semiconductors has been demonstrated at low temperatures for decades, its realization at room temperature is largely lacking. Here we demonstrate that a combined effect of efficient spin-dependent recombination and hyperfine coupling can facilitate strong dynamic nuclear polarization of a defect atom in a semiconductor at room temperature. We provide direct evidence that a sizeable nuclear field (~150 Gauss) and nuclear spin polarization (~15%) sensed by conduction electrons in GaNAs originates from dynamic nuclear polarization of a Ga interstitial defect. We further show that the dynamic nuclear polarization process is remarkably fast and is completed in <5 μs at room temperature. The proposed new concept could pave a way to overcome a major obstacle in achieving strong dynamic nuclear polarization at room temperature, desirable for practical device applications.

Spin-dependent recombination in Ga(In)NAs alloys2012Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)

The abilities to control and manipulate electron spin, especially in semiconductors, lead to many interesting proposals for spin-functional devices in future spintronics and quantum information technology. A key requirement for the success of these proposals is that the spin functionality should be operational at room temperature (RT), which remains as a great challenge. Very recently, spin-dependent recombination (SDR) via paramagnetic defects that dominate in carrier recombination, i.e Gai - interstitial defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys, has been shown to turn the material into a highly efficient defectengineered spin filter operating at RT and without requiring an external applied field. This finding has demonstrated the great potential of such a spin filter as an efficient spin source, which is capable of generating up to 90% electron spin polarization at RT.

Essential to realization of this attractive application in spintronics is a fundamental understanding of this alloy system and their related spin filtering defects. Therefore, factors controlling this spin filter must be studied, understood and optimized. In this licentiate thesis, we aim at optimization of the spin filtering effect in Ga(In)NAs alloys and the related quantum structures by studying influence of material fabrication techniques, post growth treatments and material structures. In paper I, we employed the optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) technique to study formation of Ga interstitial-related defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys. We showed that these spin-filtering defects are common grown-in defects in these alloys, independent of the employed fabrication techniques and post-growth annealing treatment. The defect formation was suggested to be thermodynamically favorable in the presence of nitrogen, possibly because of local strain compensation. In paper II, we further investigated the role of post-growth hydrogen treatment in the spin filtering effect in GaNAs epilayers and GaNAs/GaAs multiple quantum wells (QWs). From optical orientation studies, we found that the hydrogen treatment has led to nearly complete quenching of the spin filtering effect. Together with a detailed ODMR study and a rate equation analysis, the observed effect of hydrogen was attributed to hydrogen passivation of the spin filtering defects, likely by formation of complexes between the Gai-interstitial defects and hydrogen. This finding also ruled out the possibility of hydrogen as a part of the spin filtering defects in the as-grown materials, though hydrogen is known to be commonly present during the growth process.

In Paper III, we examined the effectiveness of the spin filtering effect in the GaNAs/GaAs QWs as a function of QW width. Even with rather narrow QW widths of 3-9 nm, the spin filtering effect was shown to be efficient. It was further revealed that the spin filtering effect is more efficient in the wider QWs. From studies of transient behavior of photoluminescence and ODMR, it was concluded that this was mainly due to an increase in the sheet concentration of the spin filtering defects.

##### Abstract [en]

Effectiveness of the recently discovered defect-engineered spin-filtering effect is closely examined in GaNAs/GaAs multiquantum wells (QWs) as a function of QW width. In spite of narrow well widths of 3-9 nm, rather efficient spin filtering is achieved at room temperature. It leads to electron spin polarization larger than 18% and an increase in photoluminescence intensity by 65% in the 9 nm wide QWs. A weaker spin filtering effect is observed in the narrower QWs, mainly due to a reduced sheet concentration of spin-filtering defects (e.g., Ga-i interstitial defects).

Anomalous spectral dependence of optical polarization and its impact on spin detection in InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots2014In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 105, no 13, p. 132106-Article in journal (Refereed)

We show that circularly polarized emission light from InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) ensembles under optical spin injection from an adjacent GaAs layer can switch its helicity depending on emission wavelengths and optical excitation density. We attribute this anomalous behavior to simultaneous contributions from both positive and negative trions and a lower number of photo-excited holes than electrons being injected into the QDs due to trapping of holes at ionized acceptors and a lower hole mobility. Our results call for caution in reading out electron spin polarization by optical polarization of the QD ensembles and also provide a guideline in improving efficiency of spin light emitting devices that utilize QDs.

Effect of hyperfine-induced spin mixing on the defect-enabled spin blockade and spin filtering in GaNAs2013In: Physical Review B. Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, ISSN 1098-0121, E-ISSN 1550-235X, Vol. 87, no 12Article in journal (Refereed)

The effect of hyperfine interaction (HFI) on the recently discovered room-temperature defect-enabled spin-filtering effect in GaNAs alloys is investigated both experimentally and theoretically based on a spin Hamiltonian analysis. We provide direct experimental evidence that the HFI between the electron and nuclear spin of the central Ga atom of the spin-filtering defect, namely, the Ga-i interstitials, causes strong mixing of the electron spin states of the defect, thereby degrading the efficiency of the spin-filtering effect. We also show that the HFI-induced spin mixing can be suppressed by an application of a longitudinal magnetic field such that the electronic Zeeman interaction overcomes the HFI, leading to well-defined electron spin states beneficial to the spin-filtering effect. The results provide a guideline for further optimization of the defect-engineered spin-filtering effect. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.87.125202

Efficient room-temperature nuclear spin hyperpolarization of a defect atom in a semiconductor2013In: Nature Communications, ISSN 2041-1723, E-ISSN 2041-1723, Vol. 4, no 1751Article in journal (Refereed)

Nuclear spin hyperpolarization is essential to future solid-state quantum computation using nuclear spin qubits and in highly sensitive magnetic resonance imaging. Though efficient dynamic nuclear polarization in semiconductors has been demonstrated at low temperatures for decades, its realization at room temperature is largely lacking. Here we demonstrate that a combined effect of efficient spin-dependent recombination and hyperfine coupling can facilitate strong dynamic nuclear polarization of a defect atom in a semiconductor at room temperature. We provide direct evidence that a sizeable nuclear field (~150 Gauss) and nuclear spin polarization (~15%) sensed by conduction electrons in GaNAs originates from dynamic nuclear polarization of a Ga interstitial defect. We further show that the dynamic nuclear polarization process is remarkably fast and is completed in <5 μs at room temperature. The proposed new concept could pave a way to overcome a major obstacle in achieving strong dynamic nuclear polarization at room temperature, desirable for practical device applications.

Electron spin filtering by thin GaNAs/GaAs multiquantum wells2010In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 96, no 5, p. 052104-Article in journal (Refereed)

Effectiveness of the recently discovered defect-engineered spin-filtering effect is closely examined in GaNAs/GaAs multiquantum wells (QWs) as a function of QW width. In spite of narrow well widths of 3-9 nm, rather efficient spin filtering is achieved at room temperature. It leads to electron spin polarization larger than 18% and an increase in photoluminescence intensity by 65% in the 9 nm wide QWs. A weaker spin filtering effect is observed in the narrower QWs, mainly due to a reduced sheet concentration of spin-filtering defects (e.g., Ga-i interstitial defects).

Defect-enabled Room-temperature Spin Functionality in Ga(In)NAs2012Conference paper (Other academic)

Efficient generation, maintaining, manipulation and detection of electron spin polarization and coherence at room-temperature (RT) in semiconductors is a prerequisite for the success of future semiconductor spintronics. Potential spintronic devices are expected to be based on fundamental building blocks such as spin filters (or spin injectors or spin aligners), spin amplifiers and spin detectors. During the past decade spin filters and spin detectors have been a main focal point of intense research efforts in the field of semiconductor spintronics that have led to many innovative approaches and encouraging developments. In contrast, experimental developments in spin amplifiers have been extremely limited. At present, realization of efficient RT spin functionality remains to be a great challenge and a hotly pursued research topic.

In this work, we explore a new and unconventional approach of defect-enabled spin functionality in a non-magnetic semiconductor without requiring a magnetic layer or external magnetic fields. We demonstrated efficient defect-engineered spin filtering in Ga(In)NAs, which is capable of generating a remarkably high spin polarization degree (> 40%) of conduction electrons at RT. The highest spin polarization achieved to date by using this approach is up to 90 %. We also proposed a conceptually new spin amplifier by defect engineering and provided the first experimental demonstration of an efficient RT spin amplifier based on Ga(In)NAs with a spin gain up to 2700%! Such a spin amplifier is shown to be capable of amplifying a fast-modulating input spin signal while truthfully maintaining its time variation of the spin-encoded information, and is predicted to remain functional up to 1 GHz. By taking advantage of the spin amplification effect, we further showed that Ga(In)NAs can be employed as an efficient RT spin detector, with spin detection efficiency well exceeding 100%. Applications of such a spin-functional semiconductor material could potentially provide an attractive and viable solution to the current and important issues on RT spin injection, spin amplification and spin detection in semiconductors for future spintronics.

Room-temperature spin injection and spin loss across a GaNAs/GaAs interface2011In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 98, no 1, p. 012112-Article in journal (Refereed)

Recently discovered effect of spin-filtering and spin amplification in GaNAs enables us to reliably obtain detailed information on the degree of spin loss during optical spin injection across a semiconductor heterointerface at room temperature. Spin polarization of electrons injected from GaAs into GaNAs is found to be less than half of what is generated in GaNAs by optical orientation. We show that the observed reduced spin injection efficiency is not only due to spin relaxation in GaAs, but more importantly due to spin loss across the interface due to structural inversion asymmetry and probably also interfacial point defects.

Charge Generation via Relaxed Charge-Transfer States in Organic Photovoltaics by an Energy-Disorder-Driven Entropy Gain2018In: The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, ISSN 1932-7447, E-ISSN 1932-7455, Vol. 122, no 24, p. 12640-12646Article in journal (Refereed)

In organic photovoltaics, efficient charge generation relies on our ability to convert excitons into free charges. Efficient charge separation from "energetic excitons" has been understood to be governed by delocalization effects promoted by molecular aggregation. A remaining puzzle is, however, the mechanism underlying charge generation via relaxed interfacial charge-transfer (CT) excitons that also exhibit an internal quantum efficiency close to unity. Here, we provide evidence for efficient charge generation via CT state absorption over a temperature range of 50-300 K, despite an intrinsically strong Coulomb binding energy of about 400 meV that cannot be modified by fullerene aggregation. We explain our observation by entropy-driven charge separation, with a key contribution from energy disorder. The energy disorder reduces the charge generation barrier by substantially gaining the entropy as electron hole distance increases, resulting in efficient CT exciton dissociation. Our results underline an emerging consideration of energy disorder in thermodynamic stability of charge pairs and highlight the energy disorder as a dominant factor for generating charges via the CT state. A discussion for a trade-off in harvesting charges from relaxed CT excitons is also provided.

A Chemically Doped Naphthalenediimide-Bithiazole Polymer for n-Type Organic Thermoelectrics2018In: Advanced Materials, ISSN 0935-9648, E-ISSN 1521-4095, Vol. 30, no 31, article id 1801898Article in journal (Refereed)

The synthesis of a novel naphthalenediimide (NDI)-bithiazole (Tz2)-based polymer [P(NDI2OD-Tz2)] is reported, and structural, thin-film morphological, as well as charge transport and thermoelectric properties are compared to the parent and widely investigated NDI-bithiophene (T2) polymer [P(NDI2OD-T2)]. Since the steric repulsions in Tz2 are far lower than in T2, P(NDI2OD-Tz2) exhibits a more planar and rigid backbone, enhancing p-p chain stacking and intermolecular interactions. In addition, the electron-deficient nature of Tz2 enhances the polymer electron affinity, thus reducing the polymer donor-acceptor character. When n-doped with amines, P(NDI2OD-Tz2) achieves electrical conductivity (approximate to 0.1 S cm(-1)) and a power factor (1.5 mu W m(-1) K-2) far greater than those of P(NDI2OD-T2) (0.003 S cm(-1) and 0.012 mu W m(-1) K-2, respectively). These results demonstrate that planarized NDI-based polymers with reduced donor-acceptor character can achieve substantial electrical conductivity and thermoelectric response.

Dominant recombination centers in Ga(In)NAs alloys: Ga interstitials2009In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 95, p. 241904-Article in journal (Refereed)

Opticallydetected magnetic resonance measurements are carried out to study formationof Ga interstitial-related defects in Ga(In)NAs alloys. The defects, whichare among dominant nonradiative recombination centers that control carrier lifetimein Ga(In)NAs, are unambiguously proven to be common grown-in defectsin these alloys independent of the employed growth methods. Thedefects formation is suggested to become thermodynamically favorable because ofthe presence of nitrogen, possibly due to local strain compensation.
