Synopses & Reviews
High magnetic fields have, for a long time, been an important tool in the investigation of the electronic structure of semiconductors. In recent yearsstudies of heterostructures and superlattices have predominated, and this emphasis is reflected in these proceedings. The contributions concentrate on experiments using transport and optical methods, but recent theoretical developments are also covered. Special attention is paid to the quantum Hall effect, including the problem of edge currents, the influence of contacts, and Wigner condensation in the fractional quantum Hall effect regime. The 27 invited contributions by renowned expertsprovide an excellent survey of the field that is complemented by numerous contributed papers.
The 37 invited contributions to these proceedings provide an excellent review of the use of high magnetic fields in semiconductor physics, while the contributed papers present the latest results. Particular attention is paid to heterostructures, superlattices and the quantum Hall effect.
