Abstract
The singleband, quasitwo dimensional metals PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} have recently come to prominence because of their extremely long mean free paths, which establish them as some of the most electronically pure materials known, and as potential hosts of previously unobservable regimes of electronic transport. To fully establish their magnetotransport properties, we have studied the magnetoresistance and Hall effect in bulk single crystals to which electrical contacts have been made with high precision using focused ion beam machining. We observe a strong temperature dependence of the Hall resistivity in small applied fields, linked to a large violation of Kohler’s rule in the magnetoresistance. We discuss the extent to which these observations can be accounted for by standard transport theory.
Introduction
Recent years have seen a rapid growth of research on unusual regimes of electronic transport.^{1} Of particular interest is one in which the mean free path deduced from standard measurements of electrical resistivity is very long. As is well known from the physics observed in high purity semiconductor twodimensional electron gases and graphene, a host of novel physics can be seen in this high purity limit.^{2,3,4} In bulk systems, there has been a renaissance of research into ultrapure Bi,^{5} and the extremely low resistivity observed at low temperatures in compound metals such as Cd_{3}As_{2}, NbP, and WP_{2}, is also generating considerable attention.^{6,7,8}
The majority of the bulk metals with extremely long mean free paths are either low carrier density semimetals or materials with fairly complex multisheet Fermi surfaces and both electron and holelike carriers. It is highly desirable, therefore, to identify high carrier density metals with simple, singlesheet Fermi surfaces and long resistive mean free paths, to provide benchmark systems for understanding electrical transport. An additional benefit is quasitwodimensional conduction, to provide information at high carrier density to complement observations in the low density two dimensional systems.
The nonmagnetic delafossite metals PtCoO_{2} and PdCoO_{2} satisfy all the above criteria. Conduction takes place in triangular lattice Pt and Pd layers, with a single conduction band crossing the Fermi level. The electrical conductivity of both materials is remarkably high. At room temperature PtCoO_{2} has the longest mean free path of any monovalent or divalent metal (longer even than those in elemental Cu or Ag).^{9} Low temperature mean free paths of tens of microns have been observed in PdCoO_{2},^{10} and there is evidence that in this regime, there is strong phonon drag, in which the phonons gain net momentum when a current flows, meaning that normal electronphonon scattering processes do not contribute to the observed resistivity.^{10,11}
The extremely long relaxation times seen at low temperatures in PdCoO_{2} have been exploited in studies of out of plane magnetoresistance^{12,13} and electrical flow in mesoscopic channels of restricted width,^{14} with the latter experiments uncovering evidence for hydrodynamic flow from analysis of zero field data. However, no comprehensive study of inplane magneto transport has been reported. This is important both in its own right and because of recent theoretical work highlighting the possibility that hydrodynamic effects are in principle observable by comparing data from mesoscopic samples under applied magnetic fields with those seen in bulk samples,^{15,16} experiments which require detailed knowledge of the bulk properties.
PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} are also attractive for study because of the remarkable simplicity of their basic electronic structure.^{9} The single, highly twodimensional band with dominantly Pt or Pd character that crosses the Fermi level results in the Fermi surfaces shown in Fig. 1a and b. Both have been extensively characterized by the de Haasvan Alphen effect, angleresolved photoemission measurements and electronic structure calculations.^{10,17,18,19,20,21} The results of experiment and theory are in excellent agreement, as long as the correlations in the transition metal layers are taken into account so that the small deviations from perfect twodimensionality due to interplane coherence are correctly reproduced.^{19,22} Once this is done, both the calculations and direct photoemission experiments show that, in a twodimensional approximation, the Fermi velocity is constant around the Fermi surface to within ±5% (Fig. 1c). PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} are therefore ideal materials on which to test the predictions of transport theory.
Results
As described in the Methods section below, the extremely high conductivity of PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} means that devices with precisely defined geometries are required for accurate measurements; this was achieved by sculpting single crystals using focused ion beams. In total, 3 devices of this kind were made from PdCoO_{2} and 3 from PtCoO_{2} for this project; representative devices of each material are shown in Fig. 2a and b, respectively, with measured zerofield resistivity shown in Fig. 2c and d. Averaged across all measured devices, measured room temperature resistivity was 3.05 ± 0.07 μΩcm for PdCoO_{2} and 1.82 ± 0.13 μΩcm for PtCoO_{2}, with intersample thickness variation the main source of experimental error. Given the precision with which the new devices were prepared, the above values should replace the previous best estimates [2.6 μΩcm^{10} and 2.1 μΩcm^{19}] for the room temperature resistivities of the two compounds. At low temperature the resistivity of the two samples shown in Fig. 2 is 8.1 nΩcm and 80 nΩcm, respectively at the low and high end of the ranges (8.1–29.3 nΩcm and 20–80 nΩcm) observed for the two compounds.
Throughout this paper we will discuss the analysis of transport data using expressions that, while commonly used, require precise definition. We adopt the following convention: ‘Boltzmann’ theory refers to solutions of the Boltzmann equation in the relaxation time approximation in which all scattering is momentumrelaxing, but the resulting mean free path can vary as a function of wave vector k around the Fermi surface. A ‘Drude’ expression is more restrictive, assuming the existence of a single, kindependent relaxation time. Since the Fermi velocity is so weakly kdependent in PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} (Fig. 1c), a single relaxation time is equivalent to a single mean free path to a good approximation. The low temperature resistivity of the PdCoO_{2} crystal (Fig. 2a) is particularly noteworthy because in a standard Drude analysis it corresponds to a mean free path of 20.3 μm and, therefore, to extremely weak momentumrelaxing scattering.
The Hall resistivity for the two samples is shown in Fig. 3a and b for a range of temperatures between 2 K and 300 K. As emphasized by the derivative plots shown in Fig. 3c and d, there is a clear, temperaturedependent separation between lowfield and highfield behavior. At 2 K the derivative of approximately 0.027 μΩcm/T corresponds to a Hall coefficient (R_{H}) of 2.7 × 10^{−10} m^{3}/C and Hall number of 2.3 × 10^{28} m^{−3}, within a few per cent of the Drude expectation for the carrier concentration of metals with Fermi surfaces of the volume established by the de Haasvan Alphen experiments.^{9,10,19} As the temperature is raised, the lowfield value of R_{H} drops, below a crossover field that is strongly temperaturedependent, but the highfield derivative remains approximately temperature independent for T < 150 K. At higher temperatures, the highfield regime is not reached within our range of applied magnetic fields. Perhaps surprisingly for a singleband material with such a simple Fermi surface, the low field value of R_{H} is as much as a factor of three smaller than the high field one. The measured magnetoresistance (MR) of PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} is shown in Fig. 4a and b. At all temperatures, the scale of the MR is small, never exceeding 30% at 9 T. The overall scale of the magnetoresistance at 2 K in PdCoO_{2} is noticeably smaller than that at all temperatures lower than 100 K. This strong additional depression of the MR correlates empirically with the extremely high conductivity of this ultrapure PdCoO_{2} sample at 2 K; in samples of lower purity, the effect is much weaker.
Discussion
Independent of any specific framework of analysis, the data shown in Figs. 3 and 4 imply several things. Firstly, the transport must be controlled by more than one characteristic microscopic length scale. This can be deduced directly from the Hall effect data. The weakfield Hall coefficient can in principle differ from the highfield one because it is sensitive to details of scattering.^{23} However, if that scattering has only one characteristic length scale, i.e. the system is controlled by a single mean free path in a Drude picture, the length scale cancels from the expression for the weakfield Hall coefficient and the weak and strongfield Hall coefficients must both equal 1/ne where e is the electronic charge and n the carrier density. The observation of the crossover in the Hall effect data therefore necessarily implies more than one length scale. Since the crossover field can be associated with a length set by the cyclotron radius r_{c} = ħk_{F}/eB (where ħ is Planck’s constant divided by 2π and k_{F} is the average Fermi wave vector) which decreases with increasing field, the strong temperaturedependent increase of the crossover field implies that at least one of the microscopic length scales decreases rapidly with increasing temperature.
The existence of more than one length scale around the Fermi surface is also consistent with the observation of magnetoresistance, because within the Drude theory of a singleband material with only one microscopic length scale the MR vanishes. If there are two distinct scales, the MR will be nonzero and be related to their difference, while the resistivity in zero field will depend on some weighted average of the two. If the two scales have the same temperature dependence, MR data measured at different temperatures will collapse when plotted as Δρ(B)/ρ(0) against [B/ρ(0)]^{2}. This collapse, often referred to as Kohler’s rule, is obeyed above approximately 150 K in PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2}, but is violated quite strongly below 150 K, as shown in Fig. 4c and d.
The fact that the low temperature MR data fall below the Kohlercollapsed data implies that the separation of length scales that exists for T > 150 K is becoming smaller. This would be qualitatively expected to reduce the depression of the weakfield Hall coefficient from its highfield Drude value, and this is clearly observed in the data: in Fig. 5a, we show the temperature dependence for T < 150 K of two factors, α(T) = \(\mathop {{\lim }}\limits_{B \to 0} R_H(T)/R_H(2K)\) and β(T) = \(\mathop {{\lim }}\limits_{\frac{B}{\rho } \to 0} \frac{{{\mathrm{\Delta }}\rho /\rho (0)}}{{\left( {B/\rho (0)} \right)^2}}(2K)/\frac{{{\mathrm{\Delta }}\rho /\rho (0)}}{{\left( {B/\rho (0)} \right)^2}}(T)\). The similarity between the trends in α(T) and β(T) is quantitative as well as qualitative, implying that a single temperaturedependent scale controls the weak field MR and Hall effect. The violation of Kohler’s rule in this temperature range further implies that the scale that controls α(T) and β(T) becomes significantly different from the scale that controls ρ(0).
The data in Figs. 2–4, combined with Fig. 5a and the deductions made above, represent the main experimental results and modelfree conclusions that we report in this paper. We close with a discussion of the extent to which they can be reconciled in a conventional picture of kdependent scattering.
Accounting for the observations in a conventional Boltzmann framework relies on the fact that the Fermi surfaces of Fig. 1a and b are noncircular. The weakfield Hall coefficient R_{H} ~ σ_{xy}/σ_{xx}^{2}, where σ_{xy} and σ_{xx} are the Hall and magnetoresistive conductivities, respectively. In the relaxation time approximation with only standard momentumrelaxing scattering, the length scales referred to in the above discussions are expressed as mean free paths \(\ell\). If there is only one value of \(\ell\), R_{H} is independent of scattering, because \(\sigma _{{\mathrm{xy}}} \sim \ell ^2\) and \(\sigma _{{\mathrm{xx}}} \sim \ell\). However, the elegant geometrical construction of ref. ^{23} for interpreting the weakfield Hall effect in twodimensional metals highlights the fact that for Fermi surfaces around which the curvature varies, the high curvature regions dominate σ_{xy} while an average around the whole Fermi surface determines σ_{xx}. If the mean free path \(\ell _1\) on the high curvature regions is smaller than that \((\ell _0)\) on the low curvature regions, and the curvature changes strongly around the Fermi surface, R_{H} is suppressed from its high field value by a factor proportional to \((\ell _1/\ell _0)^2\). We have constructed an explicit, simplified model of the delafossite Fermi surface as a hexagon with corners of varying curvature, with \(\ell _1 = \delta \ell _0\) on the curved regions, and \(\ell _0\) on the straight ones (see Methods). Using this simple model, it is straightforward to show that for realistic values of curvature, the Hall effect is accounted for with δ ~ 0.30.6 (Fig. 5b).
The observation of weak field MR in a material with a single twodimensional Fermi surface requires, within Boltzmann theory, that \(\ell\) varies around that Fermi surface.^{24} Some MR is expected, therefore, if \(\ell _0 \ne \ell _1\), with its value being determined by details of the change from \(\ell _0\) to \(\ell _1\) around the Fermi surface. If δ becomes closer to 1 at low temperatures, the weak field Hall coefficient rises and the magnitude of MR is qualitatively expected to fall. The close correlation evident in Fig. 5a would, however, be the result of some finetuning, because the MR and Hall effect depend differently on the details of how the variation around the Fermi surface takes place.
Although the above discussion shows that it is possible to construct a model within conventional Boltzmann theory that can capture the main features of our observations, a microscopic justification would be required for at least two of the necessary ingredients of the model. Firstly, it is not clear why there should be a factor of two change in \(\ell\) around twodimensional Fermi surfaces around which the changes of v_{F} are much smaller, and are oriented differently between PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} (see Fig. 1c). Secondly, it is far from obvious that δ should be so strongly temperature dependent below 150 K, rising from approximately 0.5 at 150 K to 1 by 30 K. More generally, the fact that both the Fermi surface shape and v_{F} variation differ between PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} is in tension with an explanation of their similar magnetotransport properties that essentially makes use of detail. For these reasons, we do not put the above model forward as a definitive explanation of the data, but as a guide to the assumptions required to make a standard Boltzmann analysis consistent with the observations.
In conclusion, we have measured the bulk inplane Hall effect and MR of the ultrapure metals PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2}, by performing simultaneous multichannel lownoise transport measurements on microstructured single crystals. Modelfree examination of the data reveals the existence of two microscopic length scales, each with a strong temperature dependence. More detailed analysis in the standard relaxationtime approximation shows that aspects of the data can be reconciled to some degree with conventional theory, but an analysis of this kind is not fully satisfactory. We note that in metals with low rates of momentum relaxing scattering, more exotic contributions beyond standard Boltzmann transport in the relaxation time approximation can also in principle play a role in determining transport properties.^{25,26,27,28} We hope that our experimental findings motivate further theoretical work on these fascinating twodimensional metals.
Methods
Device preparation and measurement
Single crystals of PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} were grown in sealed quartz tubes using methods discussed in.^{19,29} The focused ion beam sculpting of these crystals to welldefined defined device geometries was performed in a dual beam liquid gallium FIB (FEI Helios) using adaptations of methods described in detail in refs ^{14,30} Electronic band structure calculations were performed using methods described in refs ^{19,22} with the resulting Fermi velocities averaged across the k_{z} direction of the Brillouin zone to produce the twodimensional projections summarized in Fig. 1c.
Experimentally, nearly twodimensional metals with extremely high electrical conductivity are in a fairly unusual regime, and measuring the intrinsic bulk transport properties requires special care. Injection of current through top contacts can result in an inhomogeneous depth distribution of current in the measurement channel; we avoid this by patterning in the long meanders between the current injection point and the channel, confirming with simulations and multicontact measurements that homogeneous inchannel currents have been achieved. To probe the ohmic rather than the ballistic regime both the width of the sample and the spacing between voltage contacts should be as large as possible. To ensure that the magnetotransport data are a good approximation to the bulk limit, even when the mean free path is as large as 20 μm, large channel widths (155 μm and 190 μm for PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2}, respectively) and longitudinal voltage contact separation (204 μm and 244 μm or PdCoO_{2} and PtCoO_{2} respectively) were used. However, for asgrown crystals of PdCoO_{2} with a typical thickness 1020 μm, wide crystals have very low resistance at low temperatures, so good voltage resolution is required. Another issue is the relative scale of resistance and Hall resistance. In most metals in standard configurations for transport measurements, the resistance is much larger than the Hall resistance for magnetic fields B in the range −10 T < B < 10 T, but in these delafossites the situation is reversed, and even tiny thickness variations can lead to a pronounced oddinfield contribution to the magnetoresistance. Surprisingly, an apparent odd contribution to magnetoresistance does not violate Onsager’s relations in exotic cases for which transport is nonlocal,^{31} so differentiating between this possibility and effects caused by nonideal crystal shapes requires precise sample preparation and geometrical characterization. For that reason we performed the measurements described here on crystals carefully selected for uniform thickness, and sculpted to welldefined geometries using focused ion beam milling. Measuring thickness across large samples is not always easy, so all measurements were made in multicontact configurations to check for consistency. To avoid this becoming prohibitively timeconsuming we designed a bespoke probe and readout system featuring a Synktek 10 channel lockin amplifier, and studied all relevant configurations simultaneously with a voltage noise level of 1.5 nVHz^{1/2} using standard a.c. methods at a measurement frequency of 73.3 Hz for PdCoO_{2} and 177.7 for PtCoO_{2} and current of 1 mA. Fine temperature control and all readout was achieved with this homebuilt system; field and coarse temperature control were obtained by mounting the measurement probe in a 9 T Quantum Design Physical Property Measurement System.
Modeling the lowfield Hall slope
The ratio of the low field Hall slope to the high field Hall slope is given by
where \({\mathrm{\Gamma }} = \frac{{4\pi A}}{{S^2}}\), A is the area enclosed by the Fermi surface, S is the perimeter of the Fermi surface, A, is the area enclosed by the “\(\ell\)surface” (see^{23}), and \(\ell _{{\mathrm{av}}}\) is the average
mean free path:
where p is a parametrization of the Fermi surface and \(\ell (p)\) is the mean free path at point p.
We consider a rounded hexagon for the Fermi surface, with side c and radius of curvature R (Fig. 6). This leads to
We use a simple model for a momentumdependent mean free path:
on flat edges and \(\ell ({\bf{k}}) = \ell _1 = \delta \ell _0\) on rounded corners
This leads to
and
Combining everything, we find the ratio of the low field Hall slope to the high field Hall slope to be
where η=R/c.
