Quantum coherence of electronic transport in layered magnetoresistive materials (2007–2009)

Aims. To characterise, model, and understand advanced materials whose electrical resistance is dramatically changed by a magnetic field. Significance. This is a fundamental scientific challenge and is technologically important because such materials are the basis of the latest computer memories. This research will capitalise on recent major advances, both theoretical and experimental, by the Chief and Partner Investigators. Outcomes. The project will quantify how the extent of quantum coherence of the charge transport determines the magnetoresistive properties of a diverse range of layered metals.
