Excitation photon energy and carrier density dependence of spin dynamics in bulk CdTe crystal was studied by time resolved pump-probe reflectivity technique at room temperature. The results show that spin relaxation time decreases monotonously. While with increasing excitation carrier density, the time constants increases initially then decreases after reaching a maximum value. Our experimental results reveal that both D’yakonov–Perel’ [M. I. D’yakonov and V. I. Perel’, Sov. Phys. JETP 38, 177 (1974)] and Elliot–Yafet [R. J. Elliott, Phys. Rev. 96, 266 (1954); Y. Yafet, Solid State Phys. 14, 1 (1963)] mechanisms dominate the spin relaxation process in CdTe crystal.

    A study is reported of the effect of exciton localization by solid-solution compositional inhomogeneities near the crystal surface, which gives rise to new unusual features in the optical excitonic spectra.

    We present photoinduced quenching of photoluminescence in a wide-gap semiconductor crystal. Because the photoluminescence is excited by a two-photon process, the quenched region is spatially localized in three dimensions. We found that the photoinduced quenching had a clear threshold at 0.70...
