In metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors voltage-tunable quasi-two-dimen­sional electron systems can be realized by a gate voltage induced band bending at the semiconductor-oxide interface. Here recent experimental results serve to illustrate how infrared spectroscopy of electronic excitations can be used to obtain important information on the elec­tronic properties of such two-dimensional electron systems.
