Nonperturbative Matrix Mechanics Approach to Spin-Split Landau Levels and the g Factor in Spin-Orbit Coupled Solids.

Summary of "Nonperturbative Matrix Mechanics Approach to Spin-Split Landau Levels and the g Factor in Spin-Orbit Coupled Solids."

We propose a fully quantum approach to nonperturbatively calculate the spin-split Landau levels and g factor of various spin-orbit coupled solids based on the k·p theory in the matrix mechanics representation. The new method considers the detailed band structure and the multiband effect of spin-orbit coupling irrespective of the magnetic-field strength. We show an application of this method to PbTe, a typical Dirac electron system. Contrary to popular belief, we show that the spin-splitting parameter M, which is the ratio of the Zeeman to cyclotron energy, exhibits a remarkable magnetic-field dependence. This field dependence can rectify the existing discrepancy between experimental and theoretical results. We also show that M evaluated from the fan diagram plot is different from that determined as the ratio of the Zeeman to cyclotron energy, which also overturns common belief.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The branch of physics which deals with the motions of material bodies, including kinematics, dynamics, and statics. When the laws of mechanics are applied to living structures, as to the locomotor system, it is referred to as BIOMECHANICS. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
