The de Haas-van Alphen effect in PdTe2

  • A. E. Dunsworth


The de Haas-van Alphen effect has been measured in the layer compound PdTe 2 . Frequency branches from 0.1 kT to 4.5 kT were observed in the three principal planes. Effective masses were also measured. The number of branches suggests a complicated Fermi surface which is not well explained by existing band structures.
