Faraday rotation in the Appel-Overhauser model for inversion-layer electrons in Si
In order to explain puzzling observations of cyclotron resonance in electron inversion layers on Si, Appel and Overhauser have proposed a system composed of two different types of degenerate electrons. We examine Faraday rotation in this system in the limits of both weak and strong electron-electron scattering. In the former case (two noninteracting systems) we find that the Faraday rotation has a zero, at a frequency intermediate between the cyclotron frequencies of the individual systems. © 1981 The American Physical Society.
