Abstract
We report calculations of the optical absorption coefficient for interband transitions in a superlattice subject to electric and magnetic fields parallel to the growth axis. We show that in a two-band model the absorption spectrum is a sequence of resonances with a structure that can be simple or very complex depending in a sensitive way on the ratio between the magnetic and the electric energies. We discuss the case of GaAs/A1GaAs superlattices using a six-band model in the envelope function formalism. For this system we show that the two-band parabolic model may only be used at low magnetic field.
