ABSTRACT 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 linear electromagnetic response of a uniform electron gas to a longitudinal electric field is determined, within the self-consistent-field theory, by the linear polarizability and the Lindhard dielectric function. Using the same approach we derive analytical expressions for the second- and third-order nonlinear polarizabilities of the three-, two- and one-dimensional homogeneous electron gases with the parabolic electron energy dispersion. The results are valid both for degenerate (Fermi) and non-degenerate (Boltzmann) electron gases. A resonant enhancement of the second and third harmonics generation due to a combination of the single-particle and collective (plasma) resonances is predicted.

    ABSTRACT: Resonance Rayleigh scattering of light by a two-dimensional electron system in the ultraquantum limit is investigated. The scattering process under study involves electronic states belonging to the two spin sublevels of the zero Landau level. It is shown that the main contribution to resonance Rayleigh scattering originates from the fluctuations of the random potential in the quantum well hosting the two-dimensional system.

    ABSTRACT: We theoretically investigate light scattering by electrons of a 2D system in a strong magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of the system (the filling factor is smaller than two, i.e., only the states of the zeroth Landau level are filled). Analysis is carried out in the resonance approximation, in which the frequencies of the incident and scattered light are close to the effective separation between the conduction band and one of the branches of the valence band of the semiconductor. Spin splitting of the Landau level in the conduction band associated with Zeeman and the spin-orbit interactions is taken into account. The dynamic screening effects are considered in the random phase approximation (RPA).
