We study a generic topological Kondo insulator system by performing a mean-field theoretic calculation within the frame-work of slave-boson protocol. We assume infinite Hubbard-type interaction among the localized electrons. The difference between the bulk metallic and insulating phases of the insulator is in the sign of nearest neighbor hopping of localized electrons. The hopping amplitude is positive for the metallic and negative for the insulating phase. The surface metallicity together with…

Topological surface state in the Kondo insulator samarium hexaboride.
Thickness-dependent transport measurements on doped SmB6 are reported, and it is shown that magnetic and non-magnetic doping results in contrasting behaviour that supports the conclusion that SmB 6 shows virtually no residual bulk conductivity.
