The anomalous Hall effect has been measured in symmetric and asymmetric p-type GaAs two-dimensional hole gases whilst illuminating them with circularly polarized light. The resulting photoinduced voltage was found to depend on the helicity of the light and in the case of the symmetric well on the magnitude of the current passing through the sample. This voltage increased with applied perpendicular magnetic field and its spectral dependence measured at various magnetic fields, demonstrated a series of maxima and minima, which when plotted against magnetic formed a Landau - level - like fan diagram.
