  • We present a theoretical approach to study the effect of an in-plane magnetic field on the microwave-assisted transport properties of a two-dimensional electron system. Experimental evidences show that
    microwaves induce a clear quenching of resistance oscillations and zero
    resistance states. In our theoretical proposal we explain this result in
    terms of the microwave-driven harmonic motion performed by the
    electronic orbits and how this motion is increasingly damped by the
    in-plane field.
