Title: Temperature Dependent Magnetoresistance of CeCu2Si2 up to 60 T [Proposal: P14728]

Abstract

We recently investigated the chemical substitution series CeCu2Si2-xPx, for x = 0, 0.01, and 0.14, using a contactless tunnel diode oscillator technique. These measurements revealed previously unreported Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations above 45 T with an unusual temperature dependence that could potentially be explained by a high magnetic field transition. To investigate this possible transition, magnetoresistance measurements were desired. However, initial magnetoresistance measurements on CeCu2Si2 showed poor signal-to-noise due to the small value of the sample's resistivity. To overcome this obstacle, we performed micro-structuring of a single crystal specimen to increase the sample's resistance.
