Abstract

The kinetics of intersubband relaxation of electron energy has been studied in the system of Landau levels lying below the optical phonon energy. The relaxation character in the considered system is revealed to differ qualitatively from that in the two-dimensional continuous subband of the quantum well. In particular, the mechanisms of electron subsystem thermalization and energy relaxation in the system of Landau levels are qualitatively different, and the electron subsystem relaxation time exceeds the thermalization time by several orders of magnitude.
