We present a study of angle-resolved quantum oscillations of electric and thermoelectric transport coefficients in semimetallic WTe2, which has the particularity of displaying a large B(2) magnetoresistance. The Fermi surface consists of two pairs of electronlike and holelike pockets of equal volumes in a "Russian doll" structure. The carrier density, Fermi energy, mobility, and the mean-free path of the system are quantified. An additional frequency is observed above a threshold field and…

Magnetoresistance and quantum oscillations of an electrostatically tuned semimetal-to-metal transition in ultrathin WTe 2
We report on electronic transport measurements of electrostatically gated nano-devices of the semimetal WTe\textsubscript{2}. High mobility metallic behavior is achieved in the 2D limit by
Giant Magnetic Quantum Oscillations in the Thermal Conductivity of TaAs: Indications of Chiral Zero Sound
Charge transport of topological semimetals is the focus of intensive investigations because of their nontrivial band topology. Heat transport of these materials, on the other hand, is largely
Thermoelectric Hall conductivity and figure of merit in Dirac/Weyl materials
Author(s): Kozii, V; Skinner, B; Fu, L | Abstract: © 2019 American Physical Society. We calculate the thermoelectric response coefficients of three-dimensional Dirac or Weyl semimetals as a function
Anisotropy in the electronic transport properties of Weyl semimetal WTe2 single crystals
We measure the electrical resistivity ρ of type-II Weyl semimetal WTe2 using high-quality single crystals for the current I along the a and b crystallographic directions in rotating magnetic fields
Magnetic Breakdown and Klein Tunneling in a Type-II Weyl Semimetal.
Signs of this Weyl point are identified in the magnetic quantum oscillations of the density of states, observable in thermodynamic properties, of the type-II Weyl semimetal.
Layer-dependent quantum cooperation of electron and hole states in the anomalous semimetal WTe2
The behaviour of electrons and holes in a crystal lattice is a fundamental quantum phenomenon, accounting for a rich variety of material properties. Boosted by the remarkable electronic and physical
Thermopower and Unconventional Nernst Effect in the Predicted Type-II Weyl Semimetal WTe2.
The role played by the Weyl character of WTe2 in its transport properties is demonstrated and a rapid enhancement of the Nernst effect at low temperatures that is nonlinear in magnetic field is found, which is consistent with Weyl points in proximity to the Fermi energy.
Thermoelectric quantum oscillations in ZrSiS
The study of the thermoelectric power of single-crystalline ZrSiS that is believed to be a topological nodal-line semimetal is reported, and the additional Berry phase predicted theoretically for materials with non-trivial topology is shown.
Low-energy electronic properties of a Weyl semimetal quantum dot
We investigate the low-energy electronic structure of a Weyl semimetal quantum dot (QD) with a simple model Hamiltonian with only two Weyl points. Distinguished from the semiconductor and topological
Magnetoresistance of semimetals: The case of antimony
Large unsaturated magnetoresistance has been recently reported in numerous semi-metals. Many of them have a topologically non-trivial band dispersion, such as Weyl nodes or lines. Here, we show that
