Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics seminar ‘C hiral anomaly and classical negative magnetoresistance of Weyl metal ’
On March 14, a research seminar will take place at the HSE Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics. B.Z.Spivak (University of Washington, Seattle WA 98115, USA) will speak on ‘Chiral anomaly and classical negative magnetoresistance of Weyl metal’.
We present a theory of magnetotransport phenomena related to the chiral anomaly in Weyl semimetals. We show that conductivity, thermal conductivity, thermoelectric and the sound absorption coefficients exhibit strong and anisotropic magnetic field dependences. In the presence of a magnetic field the Wiedeman-Franz law in these materials can be violated. We also discuss properties of magneto-plasmons and magneto-polaritons, whose existence is entirely determined by the chiral anomaly. Finally, we discuss the conditions of applicability of the quasi-classical description of electron transport phenomena related to the chiral anomaly.
Start time: 11:30
Address: 21/4 Staraya Basmannaya Ulitsa, Building 5, Room Б-312.
Everyone interested is welcome to attend!
