Abstract

The de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) effect of the stage-2 InCl3 graphite intercalation compound was studied with two dHvA spectrometers, one providing fields up to 14 T and temperatures between 50 and 800 mK and the other up to 5.5 T in the temperature range 1.5-4.2 K. Fifteen dHvA frequencies were measured along with the cyclotron masses of many of them. The frequencies were explained by the zone folding of the two Fermi-surface cylinders of the stage-2 compound. The orbits were formed by translation of the 8√3 × 8 √3R30° lattice of the intercalant molecules.
