Is the Edge States Energy Spectrum of a 2D Topological Insulator Linear?

XXV International Symposium “Nanostructures: Physics and Technology”, Saint Petersburg, June 26–30, 2017. Quantum Wells, Quantum Wires, Quantum Dots, and Band Structure


The linearity of the edge states spectrum in a 2D topological insulator, important for various transport phenomena, is studied. Different edge state models are examined. It is found that, in some of them, the linearity is perfect, while, in others, the linearity is approximate.
