Weak localization and coulomb interaction in graphite intercalation compounds and related materials

Abstract

The effects of weak-localization and electron-electron interaction have to be invoked to explain anomalies in the resistivity and the magnetoresistance of quasi two-dimensional electron systems formed in acceptor graphite intercalation compounds and in prcgraphitic carbon materials. After introducing the basic concepts involved in the physics of these phenomena, a review is given of recent data for the low temperature electronic transport properties in these materials.
