Abstract

We report measurements on the anisotropic critical field, the angular dependent magnetoresistance, and Shubnikov de Haas oscillations in α-(BEDT-TTF)2NH4Hg(SCN)4, the only ambient pressure superconductor (Tc = 1.2K) in the α-(BEDT-TTF)2MHg(SCN)4 organic conductor family. The anisotropic critical field is well described by a 2-D model for layered superconductors where the anisotropy ε = Hc///Hc⊥ is approx. 25 at low temperatures, and rises to approx. 100 near Tc. Beating behavior is observed in the SdH effect in tilted magnetic fields.
