Abstract: An extensive theoretical study of the magneto-optical absorption spectra of periodic GaAs-(Ga, Al)As superlattices under magnetic fields parallel to the heterostructure interfaces is presented within the framework of the effective-mass approximation. ?he absorption coefficient associated with interband transitions between valence-hole and conduction-electron magnetic levels is calculated by considering an expansion of the envelope wavefunctions in terms of sine functions and by adopting a parabolic-band model for both electrons and holes. Results for the theoretical magneto-optical interband absorption spectra for varying in-plane magnetic fields compare qualitatively well with various experimental measurements. We present a detailed analysis of the effects of off-diagonal interband transitions involving conduction and valence Landau levels n and n', respectively, with Delta n not equal 0, and it is unambiguously shown that off-diagonal transitions may introduce significant contributions and extra features in the magneto-optical absorption spectra.
