A new class of materials termed topological insulators have been intensively investigated due to their unique Dirac surface state carrying dissipationless edge spin currents. Recently, it has been theoretically proposed that the three dimensional analogue of this type of band structure, the Weyl Semimetal phase, is materialized in pyrochlore oxides with strong spin-orbit coupling, accompanied by all-in-all-out spin ordering. Here, we report on the fabrication and magnetotransport of Eu2Ir2O7… 
All-in-all-out magnetic domain size in pyrochlore iridate thin films as probed by local magnetotransport
Pyrochlore iridates have attracted growing attention because of a theoretical prediction of a possible topological semimetal phase originating from all-in-all-out spin ordering. Related to the
Spontaneous Hall effect in the Weyl semimetal candidate of all-in all-out pyrochlore iridate
Experimental observations are presented proving that the pyrochlore iridate, when electronically tuned, can be a topological Weyl semimetal as predicted by recent theories, and the manifestation of the salient Hall response provides one important example of topological states, which promotes a better understanding of WeylSemimetal and indicates the new research direction for the topological-materials design.
Antisymmetric linear magnetoresistance and the planar Hall effect
This work demonstrates that the anomalous electron velocity physics typically associated with the anomalously Hall effect is prevalent beyond the ρxy(Hz) channel, and should be understood as a part of the general galvanomagnetic behavior.
