This monograph deals with the EEM in various types of low-dimensional materials, effective mass superlattices, and superlattices with graded interfaces under different physical conditions, in the presence of quantizing magnetic field and external photo excitation and also under strong electric field altering profoundly the basic band structures which, in turn, generate pin-pointed knowledge regarding EEM in various semiconductors and their nanostructures having different carrier energy spectra. The in-depth experimental investigations covering the whole spectrum of solid state and allied science in general are extremely important to uncover the underlying physics and the related mathematics. The EEM is basically a motion-dependent phenomena and we have formulated the simplified expressions of EEM for few quantized structures together with the fact that our investigations are based on the simplified k .p formalism of solid state science without incorporating the advanced field theoretic techniques. In spite of such constraints, the role of band structure behind the curtain, which generates, in turn, new concepts are discussed throughout the text.
