The authors present an evaluation for the calculation of the effective g-factor and the effective mass of conduction band electrons in pseudomorphic strained layers. They apply this evaluation to some important heterostructure systems and show that effective mass is mainly isotropically shifted whereas the g-factor exhibits anisotropic splitting. They show that these effects, being attributed to the internal strains induced by lattice mismatch, may be used to characterize heterostructures.
