Topological insulators and superconductors
Topological insulators are new states of quantum matter which cannot be adiabatically connected to conventional insulators and semiconductors. They are characterized by a full insulating gap in theExpand
Topological insulators in Bi2Se3, Bi2Te3 and Sb2Te3 with a single Dirac cone on the surface
Topological insulators are new states of quantum matter in which surface states residing in the bulk insulating gap of such systems are protected by time-reversal symmetry. The study of such statesExpand
Topological field theory of time-reversal invariant insulators
We show that the fundamental time-reversal invariant (TRI) insulator exists in $4+1$ dimensions, where the effective-field theory is described by the $(4+1)$-dimensional Chern-Simons theory and theExpand
Quantum Spin Hall Insulator State in HgTe Quantum Wells
The quantum phase transition at the critical thickness, d = 6.3 nanometers, was independently determined from the magnetic field–induced insulator-to-metal transition, providing experimental evidence of the quantum spin Hall effect. Expand
Holographic duality from random tensor networks
A bstractTensor networks provide a natural framework for exploring holographic duality because they obey entanglement area laws. They have been used to construct explicit toy models realizing many ofExpand
Experimental Realization of a Three-Dimensional Topological Insulator, Bi2Te3
The results establish that Bi2Te3 is a simple model system for the three-dimensional topological insulator with a single Dirac cone on the surface, and points to promising potential for high-temperature spintronics applications. Expand
Eternal traversable wormhole
We construct a nearly-$AdS_2$ solution describing an eternal traversable wormhole. The solution contains negative null energy generated by quantum fields under the influence of an external couplingExpand
Model Hamiltonian for topological insulators
In this paper we give the full microscopic derivation of the model Hamiltonian for the three-dimensional topological insulators in the Bi(2)Se(3) family of materials (Bi(2)Se(3), Bi(2)Te(3) andExpand
Chaos in quantum channels
A bstractWe study chaos and scrambling in unitary channels by considering their entanglement properties as states. Using out-of-time-order correlation functions to diagnose chaos, we characterize theExpand
Inducing a Magnetic Monopole with Topological Surface States
It is proposed that this effect can be used to experimentally realize a gas of quantum particles carrying fractional statistics, consisting of the bound states of the electric charge and the image magnetic monopole charge. Expand
