Dimensionality-dependent type-II Weyl semimetal state in Mo0.25W0.75Te2
Weyl nodes and Fermi arcs in type-II Weyl semimetals (WSMs) have led to lots of exotic transport phenomena. Recently, Mo0.25W0.75Te2 has been established as a typeII WSM with Weyl points located near
Quantum Hall effect in wedge-shaped samples
The quantum Hall effect (QHE) is broadly studied in the films of semiconductors, conductors, topological insulators, and topological semimetals. Wedge-shaped samples, guaranteeing the uniform
Challenges to magnetic doping of thin films of the Dirac semimetal Cd$_3$As$_2$
Magnetic doping of topological quantum materials provides an attractive route for studying the effects of time-reversal symmetry breaking. Thus motivated, we explore the introduction of the
Topological Semimetal Nanostructures: From Properties to Topotronics.
Several important aspects that should receive great effort in the future of topological semimetal technology are discussed, including controllable synthesis, manipulation of quantum states, topological field effect transistors, spintronic applications, and topological quantum computation.
Quantum Hall effect induced by chiral Landau levels in topological semimetal films
Motivated by recent transport experiments, we theoretically study the quantum Hall effect in topological semimetal films. Owing to the confinement effect, the bulk subbands originating from the
Weyl orbits without an external magnetic field
Weyl semimetals in a magnetic field give rise to interesting nonlocal electronic orbits: the ballistic transport through the bulk enabled by the chiral Landau levels is combined with a momentum-space


Thickness dependence of the quantum Hall effect in films of the three-dimensional Dirac semimetal Cd3As2
Low-temperature magnetotransport studies are reported for (112)Cd3As2 films grown on (111)CdTe by molecular beam epitaxy as a function of the Cd3As2 film thickness. All films show Shubnikov-de Haas
Evolution of Weyl orbit and quantum Hall effect in Dirac semimetal Cd3As2
The evolution of Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in Dirac semimetal Cd3As2 nanoplates along with a quantum Hall state possibly arising from such Weyl orbit is reported, indicating the dominant role of surface transport.
Three-dimensional Dirac semimetal and quantum transport in Cd3As2
Based on the first-principles calculations, we recover the silent topological nature of Cd3As2, a well known semiconductor with high carrier mobility. We find that it is a symmetry-protected
Quantum Hall effect based on Weyl orbits in Cd3As2
Evidence of a new type of quantum Hall effect, based on Weyl orbits in nanostructures of the three-dimensional topological semimetal Cd3As2, is reported, which finds that the quantum Hall transport is strongly modulated by the sample thickness.
Observation of the Quantum Hall Effect in Confined Films of the Three-Dimensional Dirac Semimetal Cd_{3}As_{2}.
The sharp quantization demonstrates surface transport that is virtually free of parasitic bulk conduction and paves the way for novel quantum transport studies in this class of topological materials.
Linear magnetoresistance caused by mobility fluctuations in n-doped Cd(3)As(2).
From the observed quantum oscillations, the bulk three-dimensional Fermi surface is determined having signatures of Dirac behavior with a nontrivial Berry phase shift, very light effective quasiparticle masses, and clear deviations from the band-structure predictions.
Transport evidence for Fermi-arc-mediated chirality transfer in the Dirac semimetal Cd3As2
This work presents Shubnikov–de Haas oscillations in focused-ion-beam-prepared microstructures of Cd3As2 that are consistent with the theoretically predicted ‘Weyl orbits’, a kind of cyclotron motion that weaves together Fermi-arc and chiral bulk states.
Topological tuning in three-dimensional dirac semimetals.
A topological phase transition is revealed in Na_{3}Bi_{1-x}Sb_{x} and Cd{3}[As-x]P{x}]_{2} alloys, where the material goes from a Dirac semimetal to a trivial insulator upon changing Sb or P concentrations.
Quantum oscillations from surface Fermi arcs in Weyl and Dirac semimetals.
It is found that the open Fermi arcs participate in unusual closed magnetic orbits by traversing the bulk of the sample to connect opposite surfaces, and result in quantum oscillations that contain observable signatures of the topological character of the bulk Weyl semimetal.
