Abstract

The tunable, high-power, pulsed radiation from a free electron laser or an amplified Ti:sapphire based solid-state laser is extremely useful for the investigation of spin-related phenomena in semiconductors. The tunability is important for resonant excitation of transitions, the high power enables non-linear or weak processes to be studied and the short pulses allow time resolution of the dynamics. We report two related studies where the excitation is with circularly polarized light, and is therefore spin-selective.
