Abstract:

A theory of surface magnetoplasmons in semiconductors is developed with the inclusion of retardation for the geometry in which the magnetic field is parallel to the surface and the direction of propagation is perpendicular to the magnetic field. If the background dielectric constant lies in a suitable range for a given value of the magnetic field, gaps appear in the dispersion relation for the surface magnetoplasmons. The possible experimental observation of these gaps is discussed. Author
