Interlayer magnetoresistance talk

Today I am giving a seminar at Bristol University, on Interlayer magnetoresistance in strongly correlated electron materials. The current version of the slides are here. The main point is that measurements of the dependence of the interlayer resistance on the direction of the magnetic field provides a powerful probe to map out anisotropies in intralayer Fermi surface properties.
The figure above is taken from a nice review article by Mark Kartsovnik, one of the pioneers of the field.

  1. Your slides have a deja vu flavour for me. As James Clerk Maxwell discovered when deriving his equations for the special case a handful of variables gives you a nice answer - c. In my experience it was the model that was usually the problem, up the projected variables, recompute then bingo confusion
