Abstract

The reflection and photoluminescence spectra of modulation-doped CdTe/CdMgTe quantum-well structures have been studied. It was found that the magnitude and sign of the Zeeman splitting of the trion reflection line depend on the electron concentration in the quantum well, whereas the magnitude and sign of the splitting of the exciton line are absolutely the same for all the electron concentrations under study. In the photoluminescence spectra, the magnitude and sign of the Zeeman splittings for the exciton and trion were the same. This “renormalization” of the trion g factor is explained in terms of the model of combined exciton-electron processes.
