ABSTRACT
Optical Faraday rotation has been measured as a function of the frequency of an applied magnetic field in two compositions of the dilute magnetic semiconductor CdMnTe. A roll-off in response is observed with the roll-off frequency increasing with Mn concentration. The frequency dependence is fit well by a simple Debye relaxation model. This dependence is attributed to relaxation of the magnetization through interactions between the Zeeman and spin-spin energy reservoirs.
