The main advantage of superlattice (SL) structures as spin polarized electron emitters is
the ability to provide a large splitting between the heavy hole (HH) and light hole (LH)
valence bands (VB) over a large active thickness compared to single strained layers. Two
important depolarization mechanisms in these structures are the scattering effects during
the transit of the electrons in the active region and the depolarization that takes place in
the band bending region (BBR) near the surface. In this paper, we systematically study
the effects of the electron mobility and transit time by using an InAlGaAs/GaAs SL with
a flat conduction band (CB). Initial results by the SPTU-SLAC collaboration using such
structures grown by the Ioffe Institute showed polarization and quantum yield (QE) of
92% and 0.2% respectively. We report measurements using similar structures grown by
SVT Associates. The results (polarization up to 90%) are also compared with simulations.
High polarization electron sources are an important part of the International
Linear Collider effort at SLAC. In previous work, polarization on the order of
90% was achieved with the GaAs/GaAsP SL , .
The main spin depolarization mechanisms in these structures are:
