Paper Abstract

The presence of lattice mismatch in CdTe/CdMnTe superlattices, grown on Cd MnTe buffer layers, can give rise to strain in the CdTe layers, lifting the degeneracy of the valence band edge, resulting in ellipsoidal bands. We calculate, within an effective mass framework, the effect of the superlattice modulating potential on spin exchange in this system and derive conditions for the stability of a magnetic polaron in this system for (001) and (111) strained layer superlattices.
