If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Clifford W. Hicks. Perfectly T-linear resistivity is observed in a variety of strongly correlated metals close to a quantum critical point [1] and has been attributed to a scattering rate 1/τ of charge carriers that reaches the Planckian limit [2,3], with ℏ/𝜏 = α 𝑘𝐵𝑇 where α is of order unity. While this relationship is often inferred from simple estimates, a T-linear scattering rate has yet to be measured. To directly access the Planckian scattering rate, we measured the angle-dependent magnetoresistance (ADMR) of Nd-LSCO at p = 0.24: a cuprate that demonstrates T-linear resistivity over a wide temperature range at the pseudogap critical point p* [4]. The ADMR reveals a well-defined Fermi surface that precisely agrees with ARPES [5]. In addition, we extract a T-linear scattering rate that has the Planckian value, namely α = 1.2 ± 0.4. Remarkably, this inelastic scattering rate is isotropic. Not only our findings [6] extend the validity of the semi-classical approach to explain the properties of the strange metal phase, but they also suggest that T-linear resistivity in strange metals is the direct consequence of a T-linear scattering rate, that reaches the Planckian bound for all directions of electron motion.
