Quantum oscillations of shubnikov-de Haas transverse kinetic coefficients


Shubnikovde Haas oscillations of the transverse magnetoresistance and of the Hall effect are analyzed. The magnetic field dependence of the monotonic components of the transverse magnetoresistance and conductivity are determined. It is found that these dependences do not follow the saturation law usually assumed to hold in a strong magnetic field. It is shown that the reason is the magnetic field dependence of the Hall angle and of the carrier effective mass.
