We discuss the growth by molecular-beam epitaxy, and studies of the low-temperature electrical properties, of undoped InAs/AlSb quantum wells. The two-dimensional electron gas realized in the wells exhibits high mobility at low temperatures, and an analysis of its Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations suggests this mobility is limited by scattering from remotely located unintentional dopants. Spin splitting of the oscillations is clearly resolved at 4.2 K, revealing a g-factor as large as -60 at high magnetic fields. The size of this enhancement increases with decreasing electron density, and is thought to reflect the associated increase in the strength of the effective Coulomb interaction.
