We investigate the Zeeman splitting of the two-dimensional electron gas in an asymmetric silicon quantum well, performing electron-spin-resonance (ESR) experiments. Applying a small dc current we observe a shift in the resonance field due to the additional current-induced Bychkov-Rashba type of spin-orbit field. We also show that a high frequency current may induce electric dipole spin resonance very efficiently. We identify different contributions to this type of ESR signal.
