Hall Conductance of a Two-Dimensional Electron Gas with Spin-Orbit Coupling at the Presence of Lateral Periodic Potential


We evaluate the distribution of Hall conductances in magnetic subbands of two-dimensional electron gas with Rashba spin-orbit (SO) coupling placed in a periodic potential and perpendicular magnetic field. In this semiconductor structure the spin-orbit coupling mixes the states of different magnetic subbands and changes the distribution of their Hall… (More)
