Abstract: Narrow gap InGaAs two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) bilayer samples are fabricated and confirmed to have good electronic qualities as well as strong Rashba-type spin-orbit interactions (SOIs). The 2DEG systems are realized by molecular beam epitaxy in the form of wide quantum wells (QWs) with thicknesses t_<QW> ∼ 40–120 nm modulation doped in both the upper and lower InAlAs barriers. From the Hall measurements, the overall mobility values of μ_e ∼15m^2 /V s are found for the total sheet electron density of n_s ∼8 × 10^<11>/cm^2, although the ns is distributed asymmetrically as about 1:3 in the upper and lower 2DEGs, respectively. Careful low temperature magneto-resistance analysis gives large SO coupling constants of α ∼20 × 10^<−12> eV m as well as expected electron effective masses of m^*/m_0 ∼0.033-0.042 for each bilayer 2DEG spin sub-band. Moreover, the enhancement of α with decrease of t_<QW> is found. The corresponding self-consistent calculation, which suggests the interaction between the bilayer 2DEGs, is carried out and the origin of α enhancement is discussed.
