We report on the measurement of the background carrier concentration of midwave and long-wave infrared (MWIR and LWIR) type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices (SLs) on GaAs substrates. The transport properties of SLs are characterized using temperature dependent Hall measurements. It is found that the conduction in the MWIR SLs is dominated by holes at low temperatures and by electrons at high temperatures. However, the transport in LWIR SL is dominated by electrons at all temperatures. In-plane transport characteristics of LW SLs grown at different temperatures shows that interface roughness scattering is the dominant scattering mechanism at high temperatures.

    The Excited Baryon Analysis Center (EBAC), which is associated with the Theory Group at Jefferson Laboratory, was initiated in 2006. Its main goal is to extract and interpret properties of nucleon resonances (N*) from the world data of meson production reactions induced by pions, photons and...

    We propose a spin current diode which can work even in a small applied bias condition (the linear-response regime). The prototypal device consists of a hornlike electron waveguide with Rashba spin-orbit interaction, which is connected to two leads with different widths. It is demonstrated that...
