Effective g factors of electrons and heavy holes in CdTe/CdMgTe quantum wells have been measured with high accuracy as a function of the angle between the magnetic field and the structure growth axis. As a result, we have observed the electron g factor anisotropy in A2B6-based heterostructures. The dependences of the g factor tensor components on the quantum-well width and the solid solution composition have been calculated within the k -p method and compared with the available experimental data.
