Tunneling Cyclotron Resonance in Semiconductor Superlattices
One of the more remarkable achievements in the field of materials science has been the growth of semiconductor single crystals atomic layer by atomic layer. By varying the composition along the growth direction a very great degree of control can be exercised over semiconductor doping and bandgaps. Although the scientific understanding and technological development of these materials has been unusually rapid, the early vision that focused on the engineering of bulk, 3-dimensional, bandstructures has been largely forsaken in favor of properties that emerge due to confinement of the electron states to the two dimensions of a single layer.
