Interferometric cantilever magnetometer for de Haas-van Alphen effect studies — •N. Ruhe, J.I. Springborn, Ch. Heyn, D. Heitmann, and D. Grundler — Institut für Angewandte Physik, Uni Hamburg, Jungiusstr. 11, 20355 Hamburg

The magnetization M provides access to the ground state energy and electron-electron interaction of a two-dimensional electron system (2DES) [1]. At low temperature T and in a high magnetic field B, the de Haas-van Alphen effect occurs. We detect these oszillations by means of the torque M×B acting on a quasistatic micromechanical cantilever magnetometer (MCM), which is made from a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure. The deflection of the flexible Cantilever is measured by a fiber-optics interferometer at T=300 mK up to B=15.5 T. The resolution of the interferometer is about 0.4 nm corresponding to a sensitivity of 2·10−14 J/T at B=10 T. In comparison to a capacitive read-out technique [1] the fiber-optics interferometer has the advantage that (i) a higher sensitivity might be reached and that (ii) electrical contacts and field-effect electrodes can be attached to the 2DES without degrading to the sensitivity. In current experiments we study the magnetization and magneto-transport simultaneously. Our latest results will be presented. We thank A. Schwarz for continuous support of the work and the DFG for financial support via GR1640/1 and via SFB508.
