Spin-Orbit Coupling Effects in Two-Dimensional Electron and Hole Systems (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)

Spin-Orbit Coupling Effects in Two-Dimensional Electron and Hole Systems (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)Spin-orbit coupling makes the spin degree of freedom respond to its orbital environment. In solids this yields such intriguing phenomena as a spin splitting of electron states in inversion-asymmetric systems even at zero magnetic field and a Zeeman splitting that is significantly enhanced in magnitude over that for free electrons. This book describes spin-orbit coupling effects in quasi-two-dimensional electron and hole systems. The first part pr…
