Title: Effective g factor of low-density two-dimensional holes in a Ge quantum well

Abstract

Here we report the measurements of the effective g factor of low-density two-dimensional holes in a Ge quantum well. Using the temperature dependence of the Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations, we extract the effective g factor in a magnetic field perpendicular to the sample surface. Very large values of the effective g factor, ranging from ~13 to ~28, are observed in the density range of 1.4×10 10 cm -2– 1.4×10 11 cm -2. When the magnetic field is oriented parallel to the sample surface, the effective g factor is obtained from a protrusion in the magneto-resistance data that signify full spin polarization. In the latter orientation, a small effective g factor, ~1.3-1.4, is measured in the density range of 1.5×10 10 cm -2–2×10 10 cm -2. Finally, this very strong anisotropy is consistent with theoretical predictions and previous measurements in other 2D hole systems, such as InGaAs and GaSb.
