Abstract

We examine the selection rules for electronphoton interaction in a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) in the presence of theRashba spinorbit interaction (RSOI) and quantizing magnetic fields. In such a case, new channels open up for electronic transitionaccompanied by the absorption of photons. As a result, two absorption peaks and a broadband absorption spectrum can be observed forhigh-mobility samples at relatively high magnetic fields. We find that electronic transitions between the neighboring Landau levels withinthe same spin orientation are the main channels for optical absorption in a spinsplit 2DEG.
