ECE215B/Materials206B Fundamentals of Solids for Electronics E.R. Brown/Spring 2008 1 Homework #5(a) Solutions Problem 1. Cyclotron resonance in spheroidal band We start with the semiclassical dynamic equation, dk e U B dt k = × G G G = = . From the given spheroidal form for U(k), 2 22 ,, y xz xT yT zL k Uk U kmkmkm ∂∂∂ === = == . So if we confine B to the x, y plane ˆˆ x y BB B xy =+ G the semi-classical equation becomes zy x L ek B dk dt m = y zx L dk ek B dt m = z x yy x kB kB dk e dt mm TT  =−   (1) Note: 2 ˆ ˆ ˆ 1 ˆ 0 yx TTL k k k y x z mmm LL T T y x z kB U Bx y z k m m ×= = + + G G = We seek oscillatory solutions in k space (would be oscillatory in real space too, but do not need that for the present problem).
