Topological insulators / Marcel Franz and Laurens Molenkamp.

By: Franz, Marcel.
Contributor(s): Molenkamp, Laurens.
Material type: TextTextSeries: Contemporary concepts of condensed matter science ; v 6.Publisher: Amsterdam : Elsevier, c2013Description: xvi, 331 p. : illustrations ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9780444633149.Subject(s): Energy-band theory of solids | Condensed matter | Topological dynamicsDDC classification: 530.41
Contents:
Part I: Theoretical foundations 1. Topological band theory and the Z2 invariant-- 2. Theory of three-dimensional topological insulators-- 3. Models and materials for topological insulators-- 4. Field-theory foundations of topological insulators-- Part II: Experimental discoveries 5. Quantum spin hall state in HgTe-- 6. Topological surface states: a new type of 2D electron systems-- 7. Visualizing topologicl surface states and their novel properties using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy-- 8. Transport experiments on three-dimensional topological insulators-- Part III: The road ahead: 9. New materials-- 10. Theoretical design of materials and functions of topological insulators and superconductors-- 11. Beyond band insulators: topology of semimetals and interacting phases-- Acknowledgments-- References-- Index.
Summary: Topological Insulators, volume six in the Contemporary Concepts of Condensed Matter Series, describes the recent revolution in condensed matter physics that occurred in our understanding of crystalline solids. The book chronicles the work done worldwide that led to these discoveries and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the field. Starting in 2004, theorists began to explore the effect of topology on the physics of band insulators, a field previously considered well understood. However, the inclusion of topology brings key new elements into this old.
