Effect of Higher Landau Levels on the Transverse Thermoelectric Conductivity in High-\(T_{c}\) Superconductors

Bui Duc Tinh


We investigate effect of higher Ladau levels on the transverse thermoelectricconductivity \(\alpha_{xy}\), describing the Nernst effect in high-\(T_c\) superconductors, by using the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau theory in two dimensional model withthermal noise. The transverse thermoelectric conductivity is calculated inthe self-consistent Gaussian approximation. Our results indicate that thehigher Landau levels are, the less these levels contribute to the transversethermoelectric conductivity. Our results are in good agreement with experimental dataon high-Tc superconductor.
