The dependence of the electron Landé g-factor on carrier confinement in quantum wells recently gained both experimental and theoretical interest. The g factor of electrons in GaAs-(Ga,Al)As quantum wells is of special interest, as it changes its sign at a certain value of the well width. In the present work, the effects of an in-plane magnetic field on the cyclotron effective mass and on the Landé g^-factor in single GaAs-(Ga,Al)As quantum wells are studied. Theoretical calculations are performed in the framework of the effective-mass and non-parabolic-band approximations. The Ogg-McCombe Hamiltonian is used for the conduction-band electrons in the semiconductor heterostructure, and the Landé g^-factor theoretically evaluated is found in good agrement with available experimental measurements.858861Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP)Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq)
