# Exactly soluble model for a fractionalized Weyl semimetal

@article{Hotz2019ExactlySM, title={Exactly soluble model for a fractionalized Weyl semimetal}, author={Fabian Hotz and Apoorv Tiwari and Oguz Turker and Tobias Meng and Ady Stern and Maciej Koch-Janusz and Titus Neupert}, journal={Physical Review Research}, year={2019} }

We construct an exactly solvable lattice model of a fractional Weyl semimetal. The low-energy theory of this strongly interacting state is that of a Weyl semimetal built out of fractionally charged fermions. We show the existence of a universally quantized and fractional circular photogalvanic effect and a violation of the Wiedemann-Franz law in the system. Together with a spectral gap in the single-particle electronic Green's function, they provide strong experimental signatures for this…
