Magnetoelectric anisotropy in diffusive transport

Phys Rev Lett. 2005 Jan 14;94(1):016601. doi: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.94.016601. Epub 2005 Jan 6.


In this Letter we prove the existence of a new general diffusive transport phenomenon in crossed electric and magnetic fields: magnetoelectric anisotropy. For the specific case of diffusive electrical transport, we present a relativistic model to quantify this effect and present experimental evidence for its existence.
