Spin Photocurrents and Spin Injection in Semiconductors
A/Prof. Jun Li
Department of Physics, Xiamen University

The creation of spin-polarized currents in semiconductors is a central issue of spintronics. Circular photogalvanic effect (CPGE) provides an optical access to generate the spin-polarized photocurrents, and also a tool to investigate the underlying spin-orbit interaction properties of semiconductors. In this talk, I will review the physical origin of CPGE and our recent work about the CPGE in HgTe quantum wells. In addition, I will give a brief introduction to the progress of the electrical spin injection transport in silicon-based magnetic tunneling junctions.
