# Nonlocal correlation mediated by Weyl orbits

@article{Hou2020NonlocalCM, title={Nonlocal correlation mediated by Weyl orbits}, author={Z Hou and Qing-feng Sun}, journal={arXiv: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics}, year={2020} }

Nonlocality is an interesting topic in quantum physics and is usually mediated by some unique quantum states. Here we investigate a Weyl semimetal slab and find an exotic nonlocal correlation effect when placing two potential wells merely on the top and bottom surfaces. This correlation arises from the peculiar Weyl orbit in Weyl semimetals and is a consequence of the bulk-boundary correspondence in topological band theory. A giant nonlocal transport signal and a body breakdown by Weyl fermions…

A ‘magic’ magnetic-field angle is identified where quantum oscillations become independent of sample thickness, with striking experimental implications, and the high-field oscillations are expected to persist in samples whose thickness parametrically exceeds the quantum mean free path.
