Closed-orbit dependence on the field direction in the anisotropic diamagnetic Kepler problem
MetadataShow full item record
The classical orbits of an electron with anisotropic mass interacting with a Coulomb center in the presence of a magnetic field are investigated. It is shown that the shape and duration of the closed orbits depend on the magnetic-field direction. Reasonable agreement with available experimental results for donor-doped silicon samples in a magnetic field is found, when the energy value of the conduction electron is appropriately chosen. © 2014 American Physical Society.
