Electron-electron interaction correction and magnetoresistance in tilted
fields in Si-based 2D systems

A. Yu. Kuntsevich, L. A. Morgun, V. M. Pudalov
We study diffusive electron-electron interaction correction to conductivity by analyzing simultaneously $\rho_{xx}$ and $\rho_{xy}$ for disordered 2D electron systems in Si in tilted magnetic field. Tilting the field is shown to be a straightforward tool to disentangle spin and orbital effects. In particular, by changing the tilt angle we prove experimentally that in the field range $g\mu_BB>k_BT$ the correction depends on modulus of magnetic field rather than on its direction, which is expected for a system with isotropic $g$-factor. In the high-field limit the correction behaves as $\ln (B)$, as expected theoretically (Lee, Ramakrishnan, Phys. Rev. B{\bf 26}, 4009 (1982)). Our data prove that the diffusive electron-electron interaction correction to conductivity is not solely responsible for the huge and temperature dependent magnetoresistance in parallel field, typically observed in Si-MOSFETs.
