Paper Abstract

The well known magneto optical selection rule 4 for two photon interband transitions between the Landau levels of semiconductors without inversion symmetry is shown to be violated when the component of the optical wave vector perpendicular to the magnetic length is not negligible respect to the inverse of the magnetic length. The total transition rate calculated out of the electric dipole approximation and with the adoption of a gauge independent description of the radiation matter interaction Hamiltonian is presented. As an application the case of GaAs and InP is considered.
