Abstract

The pseudospin degree of freedom in a semiconductor bilayer gives rise to a collective mode analogous to the ferromagnetic-resonance mode of a ferromagnet. We present a many-body theory of the dependence of the energy and the damping of this mode on layer separation d. Based on these results, we discuss the possibilities of realizing transport-current driven pseudospin-transfer oscillators in semiconductors, and of using the pseudospin-transfer effect as an experimental probe of intersubband plasmons.
