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: 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: Using the inelastic light scattering technique we observe the spin excitations for a quantum Hall ferromagnet with charged defects. The lowest energy spin excitation branch behaves as the theoretically predicted collective spin precession (“cyclotron”) mode of the spin-texture liquid. A coupling between the spin-exciton and the “cyclotron” mode indicates that the existing theory of noninteracting spin texture liquid does not provide a fully adequate description for the ground state of a quantum Hall ferromagnet with charged defects.
