# Topologically Protected Wormholes in Type-III Weyl Semimetal Co3In2X2 (X = S, Se)

@article{Sims2020TopologicallyPW, title={Topologically Protected Wormholes in Type-III Weyl Semimetal Co3In2X2 (X = S, Se)}, author={Christopher Sims}, journal={Condensed Matter}, year={2020}, volume={6}, pages={18} }

The observation of wormholes has proven to be difficult in the field of astrophysics. However, with the discovery of novel topological quantum materials, it is possible to observe astrophysical and particle physics effects in condensed matter physics. It is proposed in this work that wormholes can exist in a type-III Weyl phase. In addition, these wormholes are topologically protected, making them feasible to create and measure in condensed matter systems. Finally, Co3In2X2 (X = S, Se) are…
