Owing to their large spin-orbit coupling [1], the lead halide hybrid perovskites are of interest for applications in semiconductor spintronics and spin-optoelectronics. While the photophysical properties of these materials have been studied extensively in recent years due to their potential for solution-processed, high-efficiency photovoltaic applications [2], much less is known about their spin-related properties [3-6]. Our studies of the spin-dependent carrier kinetics in butylammonium methylammonium lead iodide perovskite [7] indicate dominant precessional spin relaxation tied to the Rashba effect. Our recent measurements of the coherent carrier kinetics in 3D CH3NH3PbI3also suggest a role played by the Rashba splitting on the rate of interband dephasing. These findings point to the need for further studies of the influence of the strong spin-orbit coupling on the charge and spin dynamics in this family of materials.
