Abstract

The spin subband populations of a two-dimensional (2D) hole system were measured as a function of a parallel magnetic field. It was found that the system gradually becomes spin polarized, with the rate of polarization and the field of full spin polarization depending on the orientation of the parallel field relative to the crystal axes. Further, the 2D system turned insulating before it was fully spin polarized.
