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


Shubnikov-deHaas and cyclotron resonance results are presented for GaInAs-AlInAs heterojunctions in both perpendicular and tilted magnetic fields. Tilted fields cause magnetic shifts and mixing of the electric subbands. The g-factor is measured by the method of coincidences and shown to be exchange enhanced to values of order 9.
