AbstractThis paper describes an n-i-p-i-n model heterostructure with a manganese (Mn)-doped p-type base region to check the stability of a positively charged manganese A(Mn)(+) centre with two holes weakly bound by a negatively charged 3d(5)(Mn) core of a local spin S = 5/2 in the framework of the effective mass approximation near the Gamma critical point (k similar to 0). By including the carrier screening effect, the ground state energy and the binding energy of the second hole in the positively charged centre A(Mn)(+) are calculated within a hole concentration range from 1 x 10(16) cm(-3) to 1 x 10(17) cm(-3), which is achievable by biasing the structure under photo-excitation. For comparison, the ground-state energy of a single hole in the neutral A(Mn)(0) centre is calculated in the same concentration range. It turns out that the binding energy of the second hole in the A(Mn)(+) centre varies from 9.27 meV to 4.57 meV. We propose that the presence of the A(Mn)(+) centre can be examined by measuring the photoluminescence from recombination of electrons in the conduction band with the bound holes in the A(Mn)(+) centre since a high frequency dielectric constant of epsilon(infinity) = 10.66 can be safely adopted in this case. The novel feature of the ability to tune the impurity level of the A(Mn)(+) centre makes it attractive for optically and electrically manipulating local magnetic spins in semiconductors.
