We report on optical reflectivity experiments performed on Cd_{3}As_{2} over a broad range of photon energies and magnetic fields. The observed response clearly indicates the presence of 3D massless charge carriers. The specific cyclotron resonance absorption in the quantum limit implies that we are probing massless Kane electrons rather than symmetry-protected 3D Dirac particles. The latter may appear at a smaller energy scale and are not directly observed in our infrared experiments.

Magneto-optical conductance of Kane fermion gas in low frequencies
Kane fermion is the counterpart of the Dirac fermion with pseudospin-1. Due to the existence of a bunch of gapless modes associated with Landau levels, the magnetic transport property of Kane fermionExpand
Efficient Terahertz Harmonic Generation with Coherent Acceleration of Electrons in the Dirac Semimetal Cd_{3}As_{2}.
The authors' time-resolved terahertz spectroscopy and calculations clarify the microscopic mechanism of the nonlinearity originating in the coherent acceleration of Dirac electrons in momentum space and pave the way toward novel devices for high-speed electronics and photonics based on topological semimetals.

Two-Dimensional Massless Dirac Fermions in Antiferromagnetic AFe_{2}As_{2} (A=Ba,Sr).
The total substitution of the barium atoms in BaFe_{2}As{2} by strontium atoms not only maintains 2D massless Dirac fermions in this system, but also enhances their Fermi velocity, which supports that the Dirac points in iron-arsenide parent compounds are topologically protected. Expand
Determination of the crystal field splitting energy in Cd3As2 using magnetooptics
Symmetry considerations are of extreme importance to the topological properties of crystals. A crystal field splitting {\delta} yields Dirac nodes near the Brillouin zone center in Cd3As2, but itsExpand

Faraday Rotation Due to Surface States in the Topological Insulator (Bi1-xSbx)2Te3.
The magneto-infrared spectroscopy data uncovered that electron- and hole-type Dirac Fermions reside on opposite surfaces of the authors' films, which paves the way for observing many exotic quantum phenomena in topological insulators. Expand

Analytic evaluation of Kane fermion magneto-optics in two and three dimensions
We calculate and present an analytic form of the magneto-optical conductivity for the gapped low-energy Kane model in two and three dimensions separately. The two-dimensional case maps onto theExpand
Energy scale of Dirac electrons in Cd3As2
Cadmium arsenide (Cd3As2) has recently became conspicuous in solid-state physics due to several reports proposing that it hosts a pair of symmetry-protected 3D Dirac cones. Despite vastExpand
