Is anything about the Bechgaard salts "normal" ? Metallic and superconducting states in oriented magnetic fields

P. Chaikin

Princeton University, U.S.A.

Using angular dependence of the magnetotransport as a probe of coherence and the existence of a Fermi liquid or more exotic phase we investigate which temperature and field regions are "normal" and which are unusual. Of particular relevance is when and how planes and chains become decoupled.. In the superconducting state we use the angular and temperature dependence of the critical field to investigate the nature of the pairing.
