Read or download book entitled Topological Insulators written by Shun-Qing Shen which was release on 18 August 2017, this book published by Springer. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: This new edition presents a unified description of these insulators from one to three dimensions based on the modified Dirac equation. It derives a series of solutions of the bound states near the boundary, and describes the current status of these solutions. Readers are introduced to topological invariants and their applications to a variety of systems from one-dimensional polyacetylene, to two-dimensional quantum spin Hall effect and p-wave superconductors, three-dimensional topological insulators and superconductors or superfluids, and topological Weyl semimetals, helping them to better understand this fascinating field. To reflect research advances in topological insulators, several parts of the book have been updated for the second edition, including: Spin-Triplet Superconductors, Superconductivity in Doped Topological Insulators, Detection of Majorana Fermions and so on. In particular, the book features a new chapter on Weyl semimetals, a topic that has attracted considerable attention and has already become a new hotpot of research in the community.

Summary : Topological Surface States (TSS) represent new types of two dimensional electron systems with novel and unprecedented properties distinct from any quantum Hall-like or spin-Hall effects. Their topological order can be realized at room temperatures without magnetic fields and they can be turned into magnets, exotic superconductors or Kondo insulators leading ...

Summary : The discovery of topological insulators as a new state of matter has generated immense interest in this new class of materials. Three-dimensional (3D) topological insulators are characterized by the presence of an odd number of families of Dirac fermions—ideally one- at each of their surfaces. Angle-resolved photoemission experiments have ...

Summary : Topological insulators are materials in which spin-orbit coupling is strong enough as to invert the ordering of bulk bands about the insulating bulk gap. While the bulk properties of these materials are not much different than any other insulating material their topological classification ensures the existence of exotic states on ...

Summary : We give a pedagogical introduction to theory of topological insulators. Following an introduction to the role of topology in band theory, we discuss several examples in detail. These include theories of the electric polarization in one dimension, the integer quantum Hall effect in two dimensions and topological insulators in two ...

Summary : The theory of the topological insulator phase that emerges via spin-orbit coupling in three-dimensional materials is introduced, stressing its relationship to earlier topological phases in two dimensions. An unusual surface state with an odd number of “Dirac points” appears as a consequence of bulk topological invariants of the band structure. ...

Summary : The discovery of the rich topological structures of electronic states in solids has opened up many interesting possibilities. The “twist” of the wavefunctions in momentum space, which is characterized by topological invariants, leads to the robust edge or surface states. The electron fractionalization associated with these topological states brings about ...

Summary : In the chapter, we review two proto-type models of topological insulators, namely the Bernevig-Hughes-Zhang model for HgTe quantum wells and the four band model for family of materials. Based on these two simple models, we discuss helical edge/surface states of topological insulators, as well as their exotic physical properties, ...
