Quantum and Transport Lifetimes of a Two-Dimensional Hole Gas in the Presence of Spin-Orbit Interaction

Xu, Wen; Vasilopoulos, P; Wang, Xiao Lin


We present a simple theoretical approach for evaluating the spin-dependent carrier distribution as well as quantum and transport lifetimes in a two-dimensional hole gas (2DHG) in the presence of spin-orbit interaction (SOI) induced by the Rashba effect. For low temperatures and over a wide range of the sample parameters, the SOI can enhance the mobility of the sample system and the quantum and transport lifetimes of a 2DHG due to background-impurity scattering do not differ significantly...[Show more]
