The properties of electrons moving in two dimensions under the influence of a perpendicular magnetic field of arbitrary strength and which is periodic in one direction are investigated. The magnetic-field modulation is such that the average magnetic-field strength is zero. Four different situations are considered: (1) a magnetic Kronig-Penney system in which the magnetic-field profile consists of a periodic array of \ensuremath{\delta} functions with alternating sign, (2) a periodic array of… CONTINUE READING
