Magneto optics of II–VI compounds under low and high excitation

Magneto-Optics in 3D-Systems, Except InSb
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 177)


Some recent results of magneto-optical investigations in II–VI semiconductors are reviewed. For the low excitation regime we consider the B-field dependence of free and bound excitons and of their excited states. In the high excitation case we discuss the behaviour of polariton-polariton interaction processes, of biexcitons and of the electron-hole plasma in fields up to 20T.
