Considering the quantum dynamics of two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) exposed to both a stationary magnetic field and an intense high-frequency electromagnetic wave, we found that the wave decreases the scattering-induced broadening of Landau levels. Therefore, various magnetoelectronic properties of two-dimensional nanostructures (density of electronic states at Landau levels, magnetotransport, etc.) are sensitive to irradiation by light. Thus, the elaborated theory paves the way for optically controlling the magnetic properties of 2DEG.
