Description: Spin–orbit coupling makes the spin degree of freedom respond to its orbital environment. In solids this yields such fascinating phenomena as a spin split- ting of electron states in inversion-asymmetric systems even at zero magnetic field and a Zeeman splitting that is significantly enhanced in magnitude over the Zeeman splitting of free electrons. In this book, we review spin–orbit coupling effects in quasi-two-dimensional electron and hole systems. These tailor-made systems are particularly suited to investigating these questions because an appropriate design allows one to manipulate the orbital motion of the electrons such that spin–orbit coupling becomes a “control knob” with which one can steer the spin degree of freedom
