Topological semimetal and Fermi-arc surface states in the electronic structure of pyrochlore iridates

- Xian-gang Wan, A. Turner, A. Vishwanath, Sergey Y. Savrasov
- Physics
- 2 May 2011

We investigate novel phases that emerge from the interplay of electron correlations and strong spin-orbit interactions. We focus on describing the topological semimetal, a three-dimensional phase of… Expand

Weyl and Dirac semimetals in three-dimensional solids

- N. P. Armitage, E. J. Mele, A. Vishwanath
- Physics
- 2 May 2017

Weyl and Dirac semimetals are three-dimensional phases of matter with gapless electronic excitations that are protected by topology and symmetry. As three-dimensional analogs of graphene, they have… Expand

Deconfined Quantum Critical Points

- T. Senthil, A. Vishwanath, L. Balents, S. Sachdev, M. Fisher
- Physics, Medicine
- Science
- 13 November 2003

The theory of second-order phase transitions is one of the foundations of modern statistical mechanics and condensed-matter theory. A central concept is the observable order parameter, whose nonzero… Expand

Quantum criticality beyond the Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson paradigm

- T. Senthil, L. Balents, S. Sachdev, A. Vishwanath, M. Fisher
- Physics
- 23 December 2003

We present the critical theory of a number of zero-temperature phase transitions of quantum antiferromagnets and interacting boson systems in two dimensions. The most important example is the… Expand

Hydrodynamic Focusing on a Silicon Chip: Mixing Nanoliters in Microseconds

- J. Knight, A. Vishwanath, J. Brody, R. Austin
- Materials Science
- 27 April 1998

We describe the formation and control of nanoscale, submerged fluid jets. The focusing process necessary to achieve these small length scales is characterized experimentally and theoretically. Fast… Expand

Physics of three dimensional bosonic topological insulators: Surface Deconfined Criticality and Quantized Magnetoelectric Effect

- A. Vishwanath, T. Senthil
- Physics
- 13 September 2012

We discuss physical properties of `integer' topological phases of bosons in D=3+1 dimensions, protected by internal symmetries like time reversal and/or charge conservation. These phases invoke… Expand

Origin of Mott insulating behavior and superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene.

- H. Po, Liujun Zou, A. Vishwanath, T. Senthil
- Physics, Materials Science
- 26 March 2018

A remarkable recent experiment has observed Mott insulator and proximate superconductor phases in twisted bilayer graphene when electrons partly fill a nearly flat mini-band that arises a `magic'… Expand

Dirac Fermions in Solids: From High-Tc Cuprates and Graphene to Topological Insulators and Weyl Semimetals

- O. Vafek, A. Vishwanath
- Physics
- 10 June 2013

Understanding Dirac-like fermions has become an imperative in modern condensed matter sciences: All across the research frontier, from graphene to high Tc superconductors to the topological… Expand

One-dimensional topologically protected modes in topological insulators with lattice dislocations

- Ying Ran, Y. Zhang, A. Vishwanath
- Physics
- 1 April 2009

Topological defects, such as domain walls and vortices, have long fascinated physicists. A novel twist is added in quantum systems such as the B-phase of superfluid helium He3, where vortices are… Expand
