We observe a new type of magneto-oscillations in the photovoltage and the longitudinal resistance of a two-dimensional electron system. The oscillations are induced by microwave radiation and are periodic in magnetic field. The period is determined by the microwave frequency, the electron density, and the distance between potential probes. The phenomenon is(More)
Retardation effects, theoretically predicted more than 35 years ago, are observed in the spectrum of two-dimensional plasmons in high-electron-mobility GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells. In zero magnetic field, a strong reduction of the resonant plasma frequency is observed due to the hybridization of the plasma and light modes. In a perpendicular magnetic field B,(More)
We show that the recombination kinetics of two-dimensional electrons with acceptor bound holes is a sensitive probe of the local spatial structure of the electronic system. Using the time resolved magnetoluminescence, we extract the regime of the electron Wigner solid and establish its local configuration consistent with the triangular lattice model. Up to(More)
Under an external magnetic field, new branches of spin- and charge-density waves have been studied in a quasi-two-dimensional electron system whose ground state has more than one Landau level occupied by electrons. These collective excitations can be treated as manifestations of the multicomponent nature of the electron system in magnetic field, whereas the(More)
We compare the results of the transport and time-resolved magnetoluminescence measurements in disordered two-dimensional ~2D! electron systems in GaAs-AlxGa12xAs heterostructures in the extreme quantum limit, particularly in the vicinity of the metal-insulator transition ~MIT!. At filling factors n,1, the optical signal has two components: the single-rate(More)
The rich correlation physics in two-dimensional (2D) electron systems is governed by the dispersion of its excitations. In the fractional quantum Hall regime, excitations involve fractionally charged quasi particles, which exhibit dispersion minima at large momenta referred to as rotons. These rotons are difficult to access with conventional techniques(More)
The dispersion of the composite-fermion cyclotron-resonance mode is measured with an optical detection scheme under the combined excitation of microwave radiation and a surface acoustic wave from an interdigital transducer. The slowly traveling surface wave defines the transferred wave vector. Momenta up to 10;{8} m;{-1} are accessible. The(More)
It is occasionally possible to interpret strongly interacting many-body systems within a single-particle framework by introducing suitable fictitious entities, or 'quasi-particles'. A notable recent example of the successful application of such an approach is for a two-dimensional electron system that is exposed to a strong perpendicular magnetic field. The(More)
Inelastic light scattering spectroscopy discloses a novel type of cyclotron spin-flip excitation in a quantum Hall system around the nu = 1/3 filling. The excitation energy follows qualitatively the degree of electron spin polarization, reaching a maximum value at nu = 1/3. This characterizes the new excitation as a nu = 1/3 ferromagnet eigenmode. The mode(More)
The microwave response of a two-dimensional electron system (2DES) covered by a conducting top gate is investigated in the relativistic regime for which the 2D conductivity σ_{2D}>c/2π. Weakly damped plasma waves are excited in the gated region of the 2DES. The frequency and amplitude of the resulting plasma excitations show a very unusual dependence on the(More)
