The electron spin-flip Raman (SFR) spectra of a series of CdTe/Cd0.93Mn0.07Te dilute magnetic multiple quantum well structures show two distinct lines, one caused by electrons bound to donors in the wells and the other by electrons under the combined influence of the well potential and the potential due to ionised donors in the barriers. The assignment was confirmed by a variational calculation. The investigation has provided a unique method of studying the interaction between electrons and donors at different locations in a quantum well structure.
