Magnetothermo-emf of a one-dimensional superlattice

The longitudinal magnetothermo-emf of a one-dimensional semiconductor superlattice has been studied in the quasi-classical limit (τ−1 ≪ Ω ≪ μ, where τ is the charge carrier relaxation time, Ω is the cyclotron frequency, and μ is the chemical potential). It is established that oscillations caused by the Landau quantization are modulated by oscillations related to a finite width of the conduction band. Conditions under which such a modulation is especially clearly manifested are determined.
