Tight-binding band structure calculations as well as magnetoresistance and magnetization measurements were carried out in order to characterize the Fermi surface of the novel organic metal (BEDO-TTF)5[CsHg(SCN)4]2. The tight-binding calculations suggest that the Fermi surface can be described as containing two contributions: a closed two-dimensional portion associated with holes and an open pseudo-one-dimensional portion associated with electrons. Shubnikov-de Haas and de Haas-van Alphen oscillations were observed in magnetic fields of up to 14 T and temperatures of 1.5-4.2 K. Four frequencies (F1 = 650 T, F2 = 2600 T, F3 = 3200 T and F4 = 3850 T) associated with the Shubnikov-de Haas oscillationswere found. The F1 and F4 frequencies are in good agreement with the calculated Fermi surface provided that the possibility of a magnetic breakdown effect is taken into account. It is also suggested that the F2 and F3 frequencies can be understood in the frame of the quantum interference effect.
