    Abstract

    We have investigated the electron mobility (μ) dependence and the electron quantized energy dependence of the electron spin relaxation time (τs) in n-type and undopcd GaAs/AlGaAs multiple quantum wells at room temperature. τS ∝ μ-1 obtained from the experimental results is consistent with the theoretical prediction based on the D'yakonov-Perel' theory.
