Magnetooptical techniques provide a powerful tool for the study of the electronic structure of many conducting materials. When a beam of incident photons of energy ħω excites resonant Landau level transitions, a direct determination of a Landau level separation is provided. For simple bands, the Landau level separation is inversely proportional to a cyclotron effective mass, which in general will be different for valence and conduction bands.
