The lead halide hybrid perovskites have gained considerable attention in recent years due to their stellar performance as absorber layers in solution-processed solar cells, with efficiencies recently reaching over 22 percent . Owing to their large spin-orbit coupling, these materials are also of interest for spintronic applications, in which the presence of lead may be less of an impediment to their adoption . Measurements of spin dynamics in bulk CH3NH3PbI3-xClx have been reported in recent years [3,4,5], the spin-dependent optical Stark effect was demonstrated in 4F-PEPI , and a large Rashba effect has been predicted in both bulk and 2D perovskites , highlighting the need for further studies of the spin-related properties of these materials. Here we report spin-dependent measurements of carrier kinetics in butylammonium methylammonium lead iodide 2D perovskite and measurements of the coherent carrier response in 3D CH3NH3PbI3. Both experiments provide direct evidence of the impact of Rashba on the carrier kinetics in these systems, further supporting the potential for developing spin-optoelectronic devices using these materials.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
