abstract = "The electron effective g factor tensor in asymmetric III-V
semiconductor quantum wells (AQWs) and its tuning with the
structure parameters and composition are investigated with
envelope-function theory and the 8 x 8k . p Kane model. The
spin-dependent terms in the electron effective Hamiltonian in the
presence of an external magnetic field are treated as a
perturbation and the g factors g(perpendicular to)* and g(parallel
to)*, for the magnetic field in the QW plane and along the growth
direction, are obtained analytically as a function of the well
width L. The effects of the structure inversion asymmetry (SIA) on
the electron g factor are analyzed. For the g-factor main
anisotropy Delta g = g(perpendicular to)*-g(parallel to)*. in
AQWs, a sign change is predicted in the narrow well limit due to
SIA, which can explain recent measurements and be useful in
spintronic applications. Specific results for narrow-gap
AlSb/InAs/GaSb and AlxGa1-xAsGaAs/AlyGa1-yAs AQWs are presented
and discussed with the available experimental data; in particular
InAs QWs are shown to not only present much larger g factors but
also a larger g-factor anisotropy, and with the opposite sign with
respect to GaAs QWs.",
