Magnetic Weyl semimetals exhibit intriguing transport phenomena due to their non-trivial band structure. Recent experiments in the bulk crystals of the shandite-type Co3Sn2S2 have shown that this material system is a magnetic Weyl semimetal. To access the length scales relevant to chiral transport, it is mandatory to fabricate microstructures of this fascinating compound. We therefore have cut micro-ribbons (typical size 0.3 × 3 × 50 μm3) from Co3Sn2S2 single crystals using a focused beam of… Expand

Effect of crystalline quality on the transport properties of ferromagnetic Weyl semimetal Co3Sn2S2
Abstract Co3Sn2S2 is predicted to host topological Weyl semimetal phase in ferromagnetic state. The realization of Weyl phase properties needs tuning of Fermi level which in turn depends onExpand

Improved Thermoelectric Performance through Double Substitution in Shandite-Type Mixed-Metal Sulfides
Electrical-transport property data reveal that the progressive depopulation of the upper conduction band as tin is replaced by indium increases the electrical resistivity, and the weakly temperature-dependent ρ(T) becomes more semiconducting in character, suggesting the more highly substituted materials are n-type degenerate semiconductors.

Ultrahigh mobility and giant magnetoresistance in the Dirac semimetal Cd3As2.
This work reports a property of Cd3As2 that was unpredicted, namely a remarkable protection mechanism that strongly suppresses backscattering in zero magnetic field and discusses how this may relate to changes to the Fermi surface induced by the applied magnetic field. Expand
Giant anomalous Hall angle in a half-metallic magnetic Weyl semimetal
