A simple model of anisotropic scattering in a quasi two-dimensional metal is studied. Its simplicity allows an analytic calculation of transport properties using the Boltzmann equation and relaxation time approximation. We argue that the c -axis magnetoresistance provides the key test of this model of transport. We compare this model with experiments on overdoped Tl-2201 and find reasonable agreement using only weak scattering anisotropy. We argue that optimally doped Tl-2201 should show strong…

Superconductivity of overdoped cuprates: the modern face of the ancestral two-electron exchange

The single-site two-electron exchange amplitude Jsd between the Cu 4s and Cu 3dx2−y2 states is found to be the pairing mechanism of high-Tc overdoped cuprates. The noninteracting part of the
