Colossal non-saturating linear magnetoresistance in two-dimensional electron systems at a GaAs/AlGaAs heterointerface
Engineering devices with a large electrical response to magnetic field is of fundamental importance for a range of applications such as magnetic field sensing and magnetic read-heads. We show that a colossal non-saturating linear magnetoresistance (NLMR) arises in two-dimensional electron systems hosted in a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure in the strongly insulating regime. When operated at high source-drain bias, the magnetoresistance of our devices increases almost linearly with magnetic field reaching nearly 10,000% at 8 Tesla, thus surpassing many known non-magnetic materials that exhibit giant NLMR. The temperature dependence and mobility analysis indicate that the NLMR has a purely classical origin, driven by nanoscale inhomogeneities. A large NLMR combined with small device dimensions makes these systems a new and attractive candidate for on-chip magnetic field sensing.
