Longitudinal conductivity of a Boltzmann electron gas in nInSb in the quantum limit in the magnetic field
Murzin S. S. , Popov P. V.
The longitudinal conductivity (i.e., that along the magnetic field) of ÌInSb due to an interaction of electrons with ionized impurities has been measured in the quantum limit in the magnetic field under conditions corresponding to a Boltzmann statistics of the electrons. For samples with an electron density n= 10^{15} cm~^{3} the results are close to the theoretical predictions of Agyres and Adams [Phys. Rev. 104, 900 (1956)]. Their theory predicts a decrease in the resistance when a strong field is applied. As the electron density decreases, the difference between the experimental and theoretical results increases, and the magnetoresistance goes from negative to positive.
