The compound GdPtBi is known as a material where the non-trivial topology of electronic bands interplays with an antiferromagnetic order, which leads to the emergence of many interesting magnetotransport phenomena. Although the magnetic structure of the compound has previously been reliably determined, the magnetic interactions responsible for this type of order remained controversial. In the present study, we employed time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering to map out the low-temperature…

Modulation of Weyl semimetal state in half-Heusler GdPtBi enabled by hydrostatic pressure

The excitation of Weyl semimetals obeys the relativistic Weyl equation and attracted significant research attention due to its unique electronic state. In this paper, we present an emerging approach

First-principles calculations of inherent properties of Rb based state-of-the-art half-Heusler compounds: promising materials for renewable energy applications

In the present work, we have studied structural, electronic, optical and thermoelectric properties of Rb based state-of-the-art materials RbYZ (Y = Be, Mg, Ca, Sr and Ba; Z = P, As, Sb and Bi) having

Degenerate manifolds, helimagnets, and multi- Q chiral phases in the classical Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the face-centered-cubic lattice

We present a detailed study of the ground state phase diagram of the classical frustrated Heisenberg model on the face-centered-cubic lattice. By considering exchange interactions up till third

Anisotropic electrical and thermal magnetotransport in the magnetic semimetal GdPtBi

The half-Heusler rare-earth intermetallic GdPtBi has recently gained attention due to peculiar magnetotransport phenomena that have been associated with the possible existence of Weyl fermions,
