  • We theoretically propose that giant magnetochiral anisotropy is achieved in Weyl semimetals in noncentrosymmetric crystals as a consequence of the chiral anomaly. The magnetochiral anisotropy is the nonlinearity of the resistivity ρ that depends on the current I and the magnetic field B as ρ=ρ_{0}(1+γI·B), and can be applied to rectifier devices controlled by B. We derive the formula for the coefficient γ in noncentrosymmetric Weyl semimetals. The obtained formula for γ shows that the… CONTINUE READING
