Peculiarities due to a complicated double quantum well (DQW) energy spectrum are revealed from the precise scan of the (B^, B||) plane between the magnetic field components perpendicular and parallel to the layers of the n-InxGa1-xAs/GaAs (x ≈ 0.2) DQW while measuring its longitudinal magnetoresistivity. These peculiarities interfere with the structures connected with the magnetic breakdown. The experimental results are presented as gray-scale maps on the (B^, B||) plane, where the peculiarities form different trajectories, that can be described semi-quantitatively by using the quasi-classical calculations of the DQW energy spectrum quantization under a perpendicular field component. The peaks due to the magnetic breakdown are relatively enhanced with increasing the total field. These are spin—split at the highest parallel fields yielding the effective Lande g -factor value |g*| ≈ 3.
