Cyclotron resonance of the two-dimensional electron crystal

L. Wilen, R. Giannetta

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cyclotron-resonance measurements of surface-state electrons on liquid helium are reported. By independently controlling the electron density and electric field, we identify the contribution to the conductivity from many-electron effects. The linewidth increases with density, in conflict with existing theories. The onset of electron crystallization is not observed with cyclotron resonance.
