- Abstract:
- Spin-orbit scattering effects in a layered quasi-2D disordered electron system have been investigated by the diagrammatic techniques in perturbation theory. The expression of Cooperon(propagator in particle-particle channel)is obtained as the function of interlayer coupling. The analytical result for the quantum correction to Hall conductivity has been obtained as functions of elastic, inelastic and spin-orbit scattering times. It is shown that the strong and weak couplings correspond, respectively, to the 3D and 2D situations. The Hall coefficient is shown to vanish. The relevant dimensional crossover behavior from 3D to 2D with decreasing the interlayer coupling has been discussed, and the condition for the crossover has been obtained. The present theory is expected to apply for the electronic transport in tunneling superlattices.
