Abstract

In ferromagnetic nanostructures, the ballistic anisotropic magnetoresistance (BAMR) is a change in the ballistic conductance with the direction of magnetization due to spin-orbit interaction. Very recently, a directional dependent ballistic conductance has been predicted to occur in a number of newly synthesized nonmagnetic semiconducting nanostructures subject to externally applied magnetic fields, without necessitating spin-orbit coupling. In this paper, we review past works on the prediction of this BAMR effect in core-shell nanowires (CSN) and rolled-up nanotubes (RUNTs). This is complemented by new results, we establish for the transport properties of tubular nanosystems subject to external magnetic fields.
