Ternary chalcogenides such as the parkerites and shandites are a broad class of materials exhibiting rich diversity of transport and magnetic behavior as well as an array of topological phases including Weyl and Dirac nodes. However, they remain largely unexplored as high-quality epitaxial thin films. Here, we report the self-regulated growth of thin films of the strong spin-orbit coupled superconductor Pd3Bi2Se2 on SrTiO3 by molecular beam epitaxy. Films are found to grow in a self-regulated…

Negative thermal expansion in YbMn2Ge2 induced by the dual effect of magnetism and valence transition
Negative thermal expansion (NTE) is an intriguing property, which is generally triggered by a single NTE mechanism. In this work, an enhanced NTE ( α v  = −32.9 × 10 −6  K −1 , Δ T  = 175 K) is
Adsorption-controlled growth of MnTe(Bi2Te3)n by molecular beam epitaxy exhibiting stoichiometry-controlled magnetism
We report the growth of the intrinsic magnetic topological system $\mathrm{MnTe}{({\mathrm{Bi}}_{2}{\mathrm{Te}}_{3})}_{n}$ by molecular beam epitaxy. By mapping the temperature and the Bi:Mn flux

The criteria that materials need to meet to realize transport properties dominated by the topological states, a necessity for a topological device, are clarified and this will enable rapid identification of new systems with improved properties, crucial to designing new material systems and push a new generation of topological technologies.
Quantum anomalous Hall effect in intrinsic magnetic topological insulator MnBi2Te4
This work probes quantum transport in MnBi2Te4 thin flakes—a topological insulator with intrinsic magnetic order that becomes ferromagnetic when the sample has an odd number of septuple layers and establishes MnBi 2Te4 as an ideal arena for further exploring various topological phenomena with a spontaneously broken time-reversal symmetry.
Strong spin-dephasing in a topological insulator-paramagnet heterostructure
The interface between magnetic materials and topological insulators can drive the formation of exotic phases of matter and enable functionality through the manipulation of the strong spin polarized

It is found that an ``extended s'' state at the valence band minimum, described alternatively as a cation valence state or a modulated interstitial planewave state, plays a crucial role in both topological and thermoelectric properties.
Topological materials by molecular beam epitaxy
Topology appears across condensed matter physics to describe a wide array of phenomena which could alter, augment, or fundamentally change the functionality of many technologies. Linking the basic
