    We report on our recent results from a systematic study of layered structures containing an InGaNAs/GaAs quantum well (QW), by the optically detected cyclotron resonance (ODCR) technique. By monitoring photoluminescence (PL) emissions from various layers the predominant ODCR peak is shown to be...

    Cyclotron resonance at the microwave frequency is used to measure the band edge mass (m[sub b]) in the two-dimensional hole (2DH) system, confined in 30 nm quantum wells in the Al[sub 0.1]Ga[sub 0.9]As/GaAs/Al[sub 0.1]Ga[sub 0.9]As heterostructures. We find that for 2DH density p<=1.0×10[sup...
