Magneto-Transport in 2D- and Intercalated Systems
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 177)


Shubnikov-deHaas oscillations, cyclotron and maanetonhonon resonance have been studied in heterojunctions and super-lattices grown with GaxIn1−xAs and InP at the lattice match with x=0.47. A two dimensional electron gas is formed which shows pronounced quantum Hall steps. Cvclotron resonance is observed in the heterojunctions giving m*=0.049mo, with a linewidth which is determined by Gaussian scattering centres. Weakly enhanced q-factors of up to g*=4.6 are observed. The superlattices show an increase in effective mass with decreasing layer thickness, and are shown to be two dimensional u0 to 200 K. Evidence for long range Optical Phonon scattering is presented.
