  • Magnetic Semimetals and Quantized Anomalous Hall Effect in EuB_{6}. Physical review letters Nie, S., Sun, Y., Prinz, F. B., Wang, Z., Weng, H., Fang, Z., Dai, X. 2020; 124 (7): 076403

    Abstract

    Exploration of the novel relationship between magnetic order and topological semimetals has received enormous interest in a wide range of both fundamental and applied research. Here we predict that "soft" ferromagnetic material EuB_{6} can achieve multiple topological semimetal phases by simply tuning the direction of the magnetic moment. Explicitly, EuB_{6} is a topological nodal-line semimetal when the moment is aligned along the [001] direction, and it evolves into a Weyl semimetal with three pairs of Weyl points by rotating the moment to the [111] direction. Interestingly, we identify a composite semimetal phase featuring the coexistence of a nodal line and Weyl points with the moment in the [110] direction. Topological surface states and anomalous Hall conductivity, which are sensitive to the magnetic order, have been computed and are expected to be experimentally observable. Large-Chern-number quantum anomalous Hall effect can be realized in its [111]-oriented quantum-well structures.
