Wide quantum dots were fabricated from multiple quantum well structures based on Zn1−xMnxTe/ZnTe (x = 0.076) dilute magnetic semiconductors and were investigated via photoluminescence (PL) in a magnetic field. Calculations taking into account the strain in the two types of structure enabled the PL transitions to be identified and show that the dominant(More)
We report a remarkable enhancement of the magnetic moments of excitons as a result of their motion. This surprising result, which we have observed in magneto-optical studies of three distinct zinc-blende semiconductors, GaAs, CdTe, and ZnSe, becomes significant as the kinetic energy of the exciton becomes comparable with its Rydberg energy and is attributed(More)
Collective and single-particle spin-flip excitations of a two-dimensional electron gas in a semimagnetic Cd(1-x)Mn(x)Te quantum well are observed by resonant Raman scattering. Application of a magnetic field splits the spin subbands and a spin polarization is induced in the electron gas. Above 1 T the collective modes, which disperse with the in-plane wave(More)
Energy transfer from photoexcited excitons localized in silicon nanoparticles to adsorbed oxygen molecules excites them to the reactive singlet spin state. This process has been studied experimentally as a function of nanoparticle size and applied external magnetic field as a test of the accepted understanding of this process in terms of the exchange(More)
