# Three-dimensional Dirac semimetal and quantum transport in Cd3As2

@article{Wang2013ThreedimensionalDS, title={Three-dimensional Dirac semimetal and quantum transport in Cd3As2}, author={Zhijun Wang and Hongming Weng and Quansheng Wu and Xi Dai and Zhong Fang}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2013}, volume={88}, pages={125427} }

Based on the first-principles calculations, we recover the silent topological nature of Cd3As2, a well known semiconductor with high carrier mobility. We find that it is a symmetry-protected topological semimetal with a single pair of three-dimensional (3D) Dirac points in the bulk and nontrivial Fermi arcs on the surfaces. It can be driven into a topological insulator and a Weyl semimetal state by symmetry breaking, or into a quantum spin Hall insulator with a gap more than 100 meV by reducing…
