Energy Bands in Topological Insulators

  • Vladimir Litvinov
Chapter

Abstract

The chapter describes a real-life example of the topological insulator by calculating the surface energy spectrum in bismuth chalcogenides. The spin-momentum locking of the massless and massive Dirac fermions and the inverse spin-galvanic effect are discussed.

Keywords
