Abstract

We report the direct observation of multiple `spin zeroes' in angle-dependent magnetic quantum oscillations measured up to 85T in YBa2Cu3O6+x, at which the amplitude falls to a deep minimum accompanied by a phase inversion of the measured quantum oscillations, enabling the product of the effective mass and effective g-factor m*g* to be tightly constrained. We find an evolution of the location of the spin zeros with applied magnetic field, and suggest that this effect and the absence of a spin zero at low angles can be produced by more than one Fermi surface component, and an effective g-factor with a subtle anisotropy between in-plane and out-of-plane crystalline directions.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figure
