Electronic transport properties of quasicrystals: the unique case of the magnetoresistance

The magnetoresistance (MR) is but one of several anomalies in electronic transport properties of quasicrystals. However, it is an exceptional one since only in this case a large part of the results can be quantitatively described within an existing theoretical framework. Evidence is discussed that quantum interference effects (QIE) describe observations in alloys with resistivity rho (4 K) less than or equal to 0.1 Omega cm. This is useful fur understanding electronic transport in quasicrystals. Examples of information derived from QIE are given.
