Dirac and Weyl Fermions in Topological Semimetals
Workshop Organizers:M. Zahid Hasan, N. Phuan Ong, B. Andrei Bernevig, Yi Li, Titus Neupert (All from Princeton University)
Semimetals with Dirac or the Weyl fermions show that quantum mechanical phenomena which are manifest at the highest energies in particle physics can also be observed at the very lowest energies in condensed matter physics. The refined understanding of topological band theory has led to the recent discoveries of topological semimetals and helped to uncover a range of exotic phenomena associated with these materials. This workshop will focus on the recent developments in this growing field, including phenomena associated with the topological surface states, the chiral anomaly and nonlocal transport signatures in 3D Weyl and Dirac fermion systems, interaction effects in 3D semimetals, and novel superconducting states in topological (semi)metals.
This workshop is supported in part by PCCM, MRSEC, and the
Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
