ESR theory for interacting 1D quantum wires

De Martino, A. & Egger, R. (2001). ESR theory for interacting 1D quantum wires. Europhysics Letters, 56(4), pp. 570-575. doi: 10.1209/epl/i2001-00558-3


We compute the electron spin resonance (ESR) intensity for one-dimensional quantum wires in semiconductor heterostructures, taking into account electron-electron interactions and spin-orbit coupling. The ESR spectrum is shown to be very sensitive to interactions. While in the absence of interactions, the spectrum is a flat band, characteristic threshold singularities appear in the interacting limit. This suggests the practical use of ESR to reveal spin dynamics in a Luttinger liquid.
