Computer Simulation Of Electrical Conductivity Versus Magnetic Field Directions

 electrical conductivity

Computer simulation of electrical conductivity versus magnetic field directions in the one-dimensional molecular organic conductor (TMTSF)2PF6. Red (blue) regions represent high (low) conductivity, showing angular magnetoresistance oscillations (AMRO) due to interference between electron waves at commensurate field orientations. This phenomenon is presently being investigated in micro- and nano-size crystals.
