Abstract (English)

Spintronics utilizes the electron’s spin degree of freedom as information carrier. The basis of this fast growing research area is given by spin-orbit coupling (SOI), which lifts the spin degeneracy of the energy bands in low dimensional semiconductor heterostructures. The resulting spin dependent band splitting in k-space is described by the k-linear Rashba terms and the k-linear and k-cubic ...

In der Spintronik wird der Spin eines Elektrons als Informationsträger genutzt. Die Grundlage dieses schnell wachsenden Forschungsgebiets liefert die Spin-Bahn-Kopplung (SOI), die die Spinentartung der Energiebänder in niederdimensionalen Halbleiter-Heterostrukturen aufhebt. Die daraus resultierende Spin-abhängige Band-Aufspaltung im k-Raum wird durch k-lineare Rashba-Terme und k-lineare sowie ...
