Quantum Matter Seminar by Dr. Tiantian Zhang on March 24, 2022
The Quantum Matter Study Group invited Dr. Tiantian Zhang from Tokyo Institute of Technology to talk about the local and global topology for Tg-protected Z2 Dirac points. In the beginning, by introducing the topological phase in the gapped and gapless systems, she discussed the conventional and Z2 Dirac points. Surprisingly, she established gauge-invariant charge formula and bulk-surface correspondence for Z2 Dirac points, which can give a full understanding about the topology of Tg-protected Z2 Dirac points. Then, she proposed the first Z2 Dirac material candidate Li2B4O7 for further exploration.
