It is shown that absorption of circularly polarized infrared radiation achieved by inter-subband and intra-subband (Drude-like) transitions results in a monopolar spin orientation of free carriers. The monopolar spin polarization in zinc-blende-based quantum wells (QWs) is demonstrated by the observation of the spin-galvanic and circular photogalvanic effects. It is shown that monopolar spin orientation in n-type QWs becomes possible if an admixture of valence band states to the conduction banddoi:10.5283/epub.2171 fatcat:f3mgu4azq5ertmttygeyrsbeoy
