Zeeman splitting of excited boron states in p-Ge

  • G. Jungwirt

The photothermal spectrum of shallow acceptors in p-Ge has been investigated at various magnetic field strengths up to 5.6 T at a temperature of 7.5 K by FIR-Fourier-spectroscopy. From the observed Zeeman splittings of the excited states of the boron acceptor the coefficients of the linear and quadratic field dependence have been evaluated andg-factors of theD-,C- and theG-transitions have been determined based on a standard group theoretical approach.
