We perform nonlocal bias spectroscopy of the self-consistent bound state (BS) in quantum point contacts (QPCs), determining the lever arm (γ) that governs the gate-voltage induced shift in its energy. The value of γ allows us to infer an enhanced g factor, and large remnant spin splitting, for the BS. Our results show many similarities with bias spectroscopy of quantum dots and are reproduced by calculations that assume a discrete BS coupled to a reservoir. This study therefore provides independent evidence in support of the notion of BS formation in QPCs.

    We report on electrical control of the spin polarization of InAs/GaAs self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) at room temperature. This is achieved by electrical injection of spin-polarized electrons from an Fe Schottky contact. The circular polarization of the QD electroluminescence shows that a 5%...

    We have recently developed a self-consistent theory of Strong-Coupling in the presence of an incoherent pumping [arXiv:0807.3194] and shown how it could reproduce quantitatively the experimental data [PRL, 101 (2008)]. Here, we summarize our main results, provide the detailed analysis of the...
