Quantum Limit in a Parallel Magnetic Field in Layered Conductors
Abstract
We show that electron wave functions in a quasitwodimensional conductor in a parallel magnetic field are always localized on conducting layers. In particular, wave functions and the electron spectrum in a quantum limit, where the sizes of quasiclassical electron orbits are of the order of nanoscale distances between the layers, are determined. ac infrared measurements to investigate Fermi surfaces and to test Fermiliquid theory in quasitwodimensional organic and highT_{c} materials in high magnetic fields, H≃1045T, are suggested.
