We demonstrate experimentally that the far- infrared photoresponse of GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures at photon energies corresponding to cyclotron resonance absorption is strongly enhanced in the adiabatic transport regime of the quantum Hall effect (QHE). Ideal adiabatic transport is characterized within the edge channel picture of the QHE by the absence of interedge channel scattering. We realize adiabatic transport by the means of a multiple gate finger structure, which is used for a selective population of the edge channels. The cyclotron resonance absorption is interpreted as an additional interchannel scattering process increasing the magnetoresistance.
