We have studied the spin dynamics in self-organized InAs/GaAs quantum dots by time-resolved photoluminescence performed under strictly resonant excitation. At low temperature, we observe strictly no decay of both the linear and the circular luminescence polarization. This demonstrates that the carrier spins are totally frozen on the exciton lifetime scale.
We have measured the carrier spin dynamics in p-doped InAs/GaAs quantum dots by pump-probe and time-resolved photoluminescence experiments. We obtained experimental evidence of the hyperfine interaction between hole and nuclear spins. In the absence of an external magnetic field, our calculations based on dipole-dipole coupling between the hole and the(More)
In monolayer MoS2, optical transitions across the direct band gap are governed by chiral selection rules, allowing optical valley initialization. In time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) experiments, we find that both the polarization and emission dynamics do not change from 4 to 300 K within our time resolution. We measure a high polarization and show that(More)
We study the excitonic recombination dynamics in an ensemble of (9,4) semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes by high-sensitivity time-resolved photoluminescence experiments. Measurements from cryogenic to room temperature allow us to identify two main contributions to the recombination dynamics. The initial fast decay is temperature independent and is(More)
We show that the light-matter interaction in monolayer WSe_{2} is strongly enhanced when the incoming electromagnetic wave is in resonance with the energy of the exciton states of strongly Coulomb bound electron-hole pairs below the electronic band gap. We perform second harmonic generation (SHG) spectroscopy as a function of laser energy and polarization(More)
Generating, manipulating and detecting electron spin polarization and coherence at room temperature is at the heart of future spintronics and spin-based quantum information technology. Spin filtering, which is a key issue for spintronic applications, has been demonstrated by using ferromagnetic metals, diluted magnetic semiconductors, quantum point(More)
Binary transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers share common properties such as a direct optical bandgap, spin-orbit splittings of hundreds of meV, light-matter interaction dominated by robust excitons and coupled spin-valley states. Here we demonstrate spin-orbit-engineering in Mo(1-x)WxSe2 alloy monolayers for optoelectronics and applications based on(More)
Optical and electrical control of the nuclear spin system allows enhancing the sensitivity of NMR applications and spin-based information storage and processing. Dynamic nuclear polarization in semiconductors is commonly achieved in the presence of a stabilizing external magnetic field. Here we report efficient optical pumping of nuclear spins at zero(More)
