Abstract

Materials with strong spin textured band (STB) emerge to be a versatile platform for developing novel advanced electronic devices. Although a lot of theories have proposed a number of materials candidates and several experiments have provided direct proof of STB effect microscopically, unravelling a real STB material with remarkable transport properties and thereby advanced functionalities has been awaited to be solved. Here, we combined thorough transport and magnetization measurement, together with theoretical calculation, to explore associated exotic properties in a STB material of EuTe2. Our study reveals strongly anisotropic coupling of electronic state (metal vs. insulator) to vector magnetic field, which leads to unprecedented colossal anisotropic magnetoresistance, (AMR) of 40000%. Density functional theory (DFT) calculation ilustrates that the insulator-to-metal transition and colossal AMR arise from the vector field dependent band structures. Our results bring the promise of STB effect into a frontier of real materials with remarkable properties and advanced functionalities and pave a path toward tantalizing STB devices.
