We present a comprehensive study of angular-dependent magnetoresistance (MR) in the layered chiral helimagnet Cr1/3NbS2 (CNS), which realizes a magnetic soliton lattice. It was found that, at temperatures below Curie temperature, CNS showed a negative magnetoresistance related to the emergence of a chiral soliton lattice state when a magnetic field was applied parallel to the ab-plane (H â€ ab-plane). When the magnetic field was applied parallel to the c-axis (H â€ c-axis), however, the negative MR disappeared and a positive MR appeared around zero field at low temperatures. Detailed analysis and modeling indicate that the positive MR is due to the weak anti-localization effect arising from the strong spin-orbit coupling of CNS.
