Abstract

We have measured the Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) effect in a HgTe/CdTe superlattice (SL) with a tilted magnetic field in the absence of an external electric field. We found that the peaks of the SdH oscillation changed with Bcosθ, indicating the two-dimensional character of the electron gas. The carrier concentration of the two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) is equal to 2.95×1011 cm−2. The 2DEG shows the existence of a Stark ladder, which is caused by the internal electrostatic field, near the interface between the substrate and the SL. From the temperature dependence of the SdH measurements, we also show that the 3DEG in the SL miniband contributes to the non-oscillatory magnetoresistance and that the mobility of 3DEG in the miniband is lower than that of 2DEG in the Stark ladder.
