Semiconductor quantum dot (QD) with a single magnetic ion is a spin-memory providing an easy optical access. However, a severe limitation for its operation was attributed to the recombination channel introduced by magnetic ions for a wide group of systems (e.g. CdSe/ZnSe QDs), in which the exciton energy is higher than the intra-ionic transition energy. As a result, the only QDs with single magnetic dopants explored so far were CdTe/ZnTe and InAs/GaAs QDs embedding Mn ions.

Here we report on the first observation of a CdSe/ZnSe QD with a single Mn ion [1]. Our time-resolved measurements reveal the same exciton lifetime for CdSe dot with and without a single Mn ion. It shows that the exciton emission quenching, even if energetically allowed, is negligible for a QD with a single dopant.

We demonstrate all-optical control of the Mn spin in the novel structure. It is achieved by injecting optically created spin-polarized excitons to a CdSe dot. Moreover, we determine the Mn ion spin relaxation time in a CdSe QD to be over an order of magnitude longer than the respective relaxation time of the Mn spin in a previously studied CdTe QD [1]. This result clearly shows that switching to the QD material with a weaker spin-orbit interaction significantly increases the storage time of information written on the ion spin.
