    Abstract

    We show that an in-plane magnetic field is able to break time-reversal symmetry of the orbital motion of electrons in two-dimensional semiconductor structures, due to the momentum-dependent inter-subband mixing, which results in supression of weak localization effect. Then, we analyze the influence of the in-plane field on weak localization correction and universal fluctuations of conductance in large-area chaotic semiconductor quantum dots.
