Strongly correlated metals comprise an enduring puzzle at the heart of condensed matter physics. Commonly a highly renormalized heavy Fermi liquid occurs below a small coherence scale, while at higher temperatures a broad incoherent regime pertains in which quasi-particle description fails. Despite the ubiquity of this phenomenology, strong correlations and quantum fluctuations make it challenging to study. Read More

Electronic and topological properties of MoS2 monolayers endowed with 3d transition metal (TM) adatoms (V-Fe) are explored by using ab initio methods and k.p models. Without the consideration of the Hubbard U interaction, the V, Cr, and Fe adatoms tend to locate on the top of the Mo atoms, while the most stable site for the Mn atom is at the hollow position of the Mo-S hexagon.

A novel topological insulator with tunable edge states, called quantum spin-quantum anomalous Hall (QSQAH) insulator, is predicted in a heterostructure of a hydrogenated Sb (SbH) monolayer on a LaFeO3 substrate by using ab initio methods. The substrate induces a drastic staggered exchange field in the SbH film, which plays an important role to generate the QSQAH effect. A topologically nontrivial band gap (up to 35 meV) is opened by Rashba spin-orbit coupling, which can be enlarged by strain and electric field. Read More

We classify interacting topological insulators and superconductors with order-two crystal symmetries (reflection and twofold rotation), focusing on the case where interactions reduce the noninteracting classification. We find that the free-fermion $\mathbb{Z}_2$ classifications are stable against quartic contact interactions, whereas the $\mathbb{Z}$ classifications reduce to $\mathbb{Z}_N$, where $N$ depends on the symmetry class and the dimension $d$. These results are derived using a quantum nonlinear $\sigma$ model (QNLSM) that describes the effects of the quartic interactions on the boundary modes of the crystalline topological phases.

We investigate the generic features of the low energy dynamical spin structure factor of the Kitaev honeycomb quantum spin liquid perturbed away from its exact soluble limit by generic symmetry-allowed exchange couplings. We find that the spin gap persists in the Kitaev-Heisenberg model, but generally vanishes provided more generic symmetry-allowed interactions exist. We formulate the generic expansion of the spin operator in terms of fractionalized Majorana fermion operators according to the symmetry enriched topological order of the Kitaev spin liquid, described by its projective symmetry group.

The canonical understanding of quantum oscillation in metals is challenged by the observation of de Haas-van Alphen effect in an insulator, SmB$_{6}$ [Tan \emph{et al}, Science {\bf349}, 287 (2015)]. Based on a two-band model with inverted band structure, we show that the periodically narrowing hybridization gap in magnetic fields can induce the oscillation of low-energy density of states in the bulk, which is observable provided that the hybridization gap is narrow and comparable to the Landau level spacing. Its temperature dependence strongly deviates from the Lifshitz-Kosevich theory. Read More

The recent development in analog computation is reviewed in this paper. Analog computation was used in many applications where power and energy efficiency is of paramount importance. It is shown that by using innovative architecture and circuit design, analog computation systems can achieve much higher energy efficiency than their digital counterparts, as they are able to exploit the computational power inherent to the devices and physics.

In this paper we developed theory of the ferrimagnetism in the Hubbard model on bipartite lattices with spectrum symmetry. We then study the defect-induced ferrimagnetic orders in three models and explored the universal features. Read More
