The plasma, magnetoplasma, and edge magnetoplasma excitations were investigated in two-dimensional electron systems hosted at the heterointerface of MgZnO/ZnO structures using optical detection of resonant microwave absorption. The magnetodispersion of the plasma excitations allowed the extraction of the electron effective mass. It was found to exhibit a surprisingly large dependence on the electron density, which is difficult to account for just from nonparabolicity effects.
