Evidence is mounting that the normal state properties of high-Tc superconductors (HTS) may be accounted for using a quasi-two dimensional Fermi liquid model with low carrier concentration. We present preliminary results of magneto-transport measurements on thin films of YBa2Cu3O7-y and GdBa2Cu3O7-y which support this model. Initial results from cyclotron resonance experiments suggest an effective mass in YBa2Cu3O7-y which is 1.4 times the free electron mass.
