- We report on theoretical studies of recently obtained experimental results on microwave-induced resistance oscillations and zero resistance states in Hall bars with two occupied subbands. In these experiments, resistance presents a peculiar shape which appears to have a built-in interference effect not observed before. We apply the microwave-driven electron orbit model, which implies a radiation-driven oscillation of the two-dimensional electron system. Thus, we calculate different intra- and inter-subband electron scattering rates revealing different microwave-driven oscillations frequencies for the two electronic subbands. Calculated results are in good agreement with experiments.
