Theoretical calculations of free-exciton magnetic polaron energies in semimagnetic quantum-well structures have been performed. The dependence of the polaron energy on well width, magnetic field, and temperature has been calculated. Polaron energy calculations in diffused semimagnetic quantum wells show a strong dependence of the polaron energy on the amount of diffusion in the quantum well. Consequently, magnetic polaron energies could be used as a means of measuring the diffusion coefficient.
