Title: Strong localization effect in magnetic two-dimensional hole systems

Abstract

We report an extensive study of the magnetotransport properties of magnetically doped two-dimensional hole systems. Inverted manganese modulation doped InAs quantum wells with localized manganese ions providing a magnetic moment of S=5/2 were grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Strong localization effect found in low-field magnetotransport measurements on these structures can either be modified by the manganese doping density or by tuning the two-dimensional hole density p via field effect. The data reveal that the ratio between p and manganese ions inside or in close vicinity to the channel enlarges the strong localization effect. Moreover, asymmetric broadening of the doping layer due to manganese segregation is significantly influenced by strain in the heterostructure.

  • Electron-hole systems on a Haldane sphere are studied by exact numerical diagonalization. Low-lying states contain one or more types of bound charged excitonic complexes X{sub k}{sup {minus}}, interacting through appropriate pseudopotentials. Incompressible ground states of such multicomponent plasmas are found. A generalized multicomponent Laughlin wave function and composite fermion picture are shown to predict the low-lying states of an electron-hole gas at any value of the magnetic field. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • The Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of magnetoexcitonic polaritons (magnetopolaritons) in two-dimensional (2D) electron-hole system embedded in a semiconductor microcavity in a high magnetic field B is predicted. There are two physical realizations of 2D electron-hole system under consideration: a graphene layer and quantum well (QW). A 2D gas of magnetopolaritons is considered in a planar harmonic potential trap. Two possible physical realizations of this trapping potential are assumed: inhomogeneous local stress or harmonic electric field potential applied to excitons and a parabolic shape of the semiconductor cavity causing the trapping of microcavity photons. The effective Hamiltonian of the ideal gas ofmore » cavity polaritons in a QW and graphene in a high magnetic field and the BEC temperature as functions of magnetic field are obtained. It is shown that the effective polariton mass M{sub eff} increases with magnetic field as B{sup 1/2}. The BEC critical temperature T{sub c}{sup (0)} decreases as B{sup -1/4} and increases with the spring constant of the parabolic trap. The Rabi splitting related to the creation of a magnetoexciton in a high magnetic field in graphene and QW is obtained. It is shown that Rabi splitting in graphene can be controlled by the external magnetic field since it is proportional to B{sup -1/4} while in a QW the Rabi splitting does not depend on the magnetic field when it is strong.« less
  • The conductance in two-dimensional (2D) normal-superconducting (NS) systems is analyzed in the limit of strong magnetic fields when the transport is mediated by the electron-hole states bound to the sample edges and NS interface, i.e., in the Integer Quantum Hall Effect regime. The Andreev-type process of the conversion of the quasiparticle current into the superflow is shown to be strongly affected by the mixing of the edge states localized at the NS and insulating boundaries. The magnetoconductance in 2D NS structures is calculated for both quadratic and Dirac-like normal state spectra. Assuming a random scattering of the edge modes wemore » analyze both the average value and fluctuations of conductance for an arbitrary number of conducting channels.« less
  • The motion of a viscous, electrically conducting fluid past a finite two- dimensional obstacle is investigated. The magnetic field is assumed to be uniform and parallel to the velocity at infinity. By means of a perturbation technique, approximations valid for large values of the Hartmann number M are derived. It is found that, over any finite region, the flow field is characterized by the presence of shear layers fore and aft of the body. The limit attained over the exterior region represents the twodimensional counterpart of the axially symmetric solution given by Chester. Attention is focused on a number ofmore » nominally "higher-order" effects, including the presence of two distinct boundary layers. The results hold only when M>> the Reynolds number. However, a generalization of the procedure, in which the last assumption is relaxed, is suggested.« less
