The quasi-two-dimensional molecular conductor α-(BEDT-TTF)2I3 exhibits anomalous transport phenomena where the temperature dependence of resistivity is weak but the ratio of the Hall coefficient at 10 K to that at room temperature is of the order of 104. These puzzling phenomena were solved by predicting massless Dirac fermions, whose motions are described(More)
A three-dimensional (3-D) odor compass is proposed to develop a navigation tool used in searching for an odor source. The compass, which continuously points to the source, is equipped with four semiconductor gas sensors and a small fan to draw air to the sensors. The direction of the source is obtained by rotating the compass head to obtain the direction(More)
Abstract. A zero-gap state (ZGS) has been found in a bulk system of two-dimensional organic conductor, α-(BEDT-TTF)2I3 salt which consists of four sites of donor molecules in a unit cell. In the present paper, the characteristic of the ZGS is analyzed in detail and the electronic properties are examined in the vicinity of the Dirac point where the(More)
The Coulomb interaction among massless Dirac fermions in graphene is unscreened around the isotropic Dirac points, causing a logarithmic velocity renormalization and a cone reshaping. In less symmetric Dirac materials possessing anisotropic cones with tilted axes, the Coulomb interaction can provide still more exotic phenomena, which have not been(More)
