    The (001)-oriented P-I-N InGaAs/GaAs quantum wells (QWs) are studied by means of helicity dependent spin photocurrent. We have observed an unexpected circular dichroism effect along [001] direction in the QWs without an applied magnetic field. The circular polarization rate can be linearly tuned...
