Abstract

The paper reviews some of the techniques and the results obtained using high frequency phonons as probes of two-dimensional systems in zero and quantizing magnetic fields. It also describes a number of recent experiments including studies of dissipation at the current entry and exit points of a Hall bar in quantizing magnetic fields, cyclotron phonon emission, phonon induced backscattering in the quantum Hall regime and phonon emission from excited subbands.
