An antiphased magnetoplasma (MP) mode in a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) has been studied by means of inelastic light scattering (ILS) spectroscopy. Unlike the cophased MP mode it is purely quantum excitation which has no classic plasma analogue. It is found that zero momentum degeneracy for the antiphased and cophased modes predicted by the first-order perturbation approach in terms of the {\it e-e} interaction is lifted. The zero momentum energy gap is determined by a negative correlation shift of the antiphased mode. This shift, observed experimentally and calculated theoretically within the second-order perturbation approach, is proportional to the effective Rydberg constant in a semiconductor material.

    ABSTRACT: The magnetoplasmon spectrum in a 2D electron plasma is investigated theoretically taking into account the spin—orbit interaction in the Rashba model. The expression is derived for the polarization operator in the semiclassical range of magnetic fields (in which the Fermi energy eF is much larger than the Landau quantum). Approximate analytic formulas are obtained for spin—plasmon branches. The dependences of plasma wave frequencies on the wavevector and magnetic field are calculated from a numerical solution of the dispersion equation. In addition, the magnetic field and frequency dependences of the plasmon absorption intensity are constructed. The absorption intensity at the peak is found to be sensitive to the spin—orbit interaction constant.

    ABSTRACT: We have theoretically investigated magnetoplasma oscillations of a 2D electronic system with spin–orbit interaction (SOI) in the Bychkov–Rashba model. Accounting for SOI results in new branches of magnetoplasmons as compared with the spinless case where the Bernstein modes exist only. A remarkable feature of the problem in question is magnetic field controlled interaction of branches (multiple anticrossings). This is manifested in the spectra of plasmon absorption of electromagnetic radiation.

    ABSTRACT: We report on the observation of a new spin mode in a quantum Hall system in the vicinity of odd electron filling factors under experimental conditions excluding the possibility of Skyrmion excitations. The new mode having presumably zero energy at odd filling factors emerges at small deviations from odd filling factors and couples to the spin-exciton. The existence of an extra spin mode assumes a nontrivial magnetic order at partial fillings of Landau levels surrounding quantum Hall ferromagnets other then the Skyrmion crystal.
