  • The most general form of the Hamiltonian of an electron or hole in a semiconductor such as Si or Ge, in the presence of an external homogeneous magnetic field, is given.
  • Rev. 102, 1030 – Published 15 May 1956
  • Two methods of obtaining the corresponding energy levels are discussed.
  • The first should yield very accurate values for the magnetic field in the direction for either Si or Ge. The second is a perturbation method and is expected to give good results only for Ge.
