The biological activity of essential oil extracted from coriander, Coriandrum sativum L. (Apiaceae) against eggs, larvae and adults of Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) was investigated in a series of laboratory experiments. Bioassays conducted in air-tight glass chambers showed vapour toxicity and strong repellency on filter paper arena test towards all the(More)
© 2014 Materials Research Society MRS BULLETIN • VOLUME 39 • OCTOBER 2014 • Introduction Topological insulators (TIs) are a class of materials where the bulk is a band insulator, but the surface possesses electronic states carrying electric current. 1 , 2 One unique characteristic of the surface bands is the spin-momentum locking(More)
We present a study of the structural and electronic properties of highly doped topological insulator Bi2Se3 single crystals synthesized by the Bridgeman method. Lattice structural characterizations by X-ray diffraction, scanning tunneling microscopy, and Raman spectroscopy confirmed the high quality of the as-grown single crystals. The topological surface(More)
Layered transition metal chalcogenides with large spin orbit coupling have recently sparked much interest due to their potential applications for electronic, optoelectronic, spintronics, and valleytronics. However, most current understanding of the electronic structure near band valleys in momentum space is based on either theoretical investigations or(More)
A recent theory predicts that dissipationless spin currents can be induced purely by an electric field in conventional semiconductors. The dissipationless spin current is derived from a novel topological structure in momentum space, is independent of the sample disorder and leads to the intrinsic spin Hall effect. In hole doped semiconductors, with or(More)
We introduce the concept of a bosonic spin liquid condensate (SLC), where spinful bosons in a lattice form a zero-temperature spin disordered charge condensate that preserves the spin rotation symmetry, but breaks the U(1) symmetry due to a spinless order parameter with charge one. It has an energy gap to all the spin excitations. We show that such SLC(More)
