This dissertation focuses on the transport properties of the high-temperature superconductor LSCO in high magnetic fields, particularly the longitudinal magnetoresistance around optimum doping. In this region of the phase diagram the longitudinal magnetoresistance appears to exhibit non-Fermi liquid magnetoresisitance. Additionally, high-field magnetotransport in LBCO is included, which revealed a layered, phase-decoupled superconducting state for x = 0.095.
A Dissertation submitted to the Department of Physics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
