Electric and Magnetic Quantisation of Two-Dimensional Systems — Elementary Theory

  • Wlodek Zawadzki
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 53)


We describe electric and magnetic quantisation of two-dimensional systems for standard and narrow-gap semiconductors, using extensively the semiclassical quantisation procedure. The density of electron states is discussed.
