Abstract

We report a novel electric field effect on angular dependent magnetotransport in quasi-one-dimensional layered conductors with a pair of sheetlike Fermi surfaces. Under tilted magnetic fields and additional interlayer electric fields, semiclassical electron orbits on two Fermi sheets become periodic at different magnetic field orientations. This causes double splitting of the Lebed’s commensurability resonance in interlayer transport, and the amount of splitting allows us to estimate the Fermi velocity directly. We have successfully demonstrated this effect in the organic conductor α-(BEDT-TTF)2KHg(SCN)4.
