We study the effect of spatial correlation of ionized donors on the single-particle scattering time and on spin splitting in a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG). As the correlation is being reduced we observe a reduction in the scattering time and a collapse of the spin-splitted peaks into a single peak. We find these electronic properties to be much more sensitive than the momentum relaxation time (or mobility) in high mobility 2DEG. We compare our results with Monte Carlo simulations and find them to be in partial agreement.
