Abstract

We report experimental studies of nearly degenerate time-resolved Faraday rotation (TRFR) of electron spin precession in an interacting exciton system. We show that many-body interactions between excitons strongly modify the TRFR response through the coupling of the spin coherence to two-exciton states. The striking difference between TRFR and transient differential absorption (DA) further reveals that exciton-exciton interactions play crucial but qualitatively different roles in TRFR and DA.
