Quantum Hall systems in microwave fields

Experimental studies of quantum Hall systems under the microwave irradiation have revealed a number of new types of magnetoresistance oscillations induced by the electromagnetic waves. Some of these new phenomena have been used for the creation of innovative devices such as frequency sensitive detectors and spectrometers of microwave and terahertz radiation. The goal of this project is to develop a theory of the interaction of microwaves with two-dimensional electron systems, to explain the observed phenomena and to find the ways of improving the new device operation.
