Abstract

We studied low temperature (formula presented) mK) in-plane magnetoresistance of a dilute two-dimensional hole system in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure that exhibits an apparent metal-insulator transition. We found an anisotropic magnetoresistance, which changes dramatically at high in-plane fields (formula presented) T) as the hole density is varied. At high densities where the system behaves metallic at (formula presented) the transverse magnetoresistance is larger than the longitudinal magnetoresistance. With decreasing the hole density the difference becomes progressively smaller, and at densities near the “critical” density and lower, the longitudinal magnetoresistance becomes larger than the transverse magnetoresistance.
