报告题目:Discrete scale invariance and log-B periodic quantum oscillations in ultra-quantum Dirac materials

 
摘要:The quasi-particle in Dirac materials obeys the relativistic equation, and the value of fine structure constant in Dirac materials is much larger than the value in the vacuum. Owing to the large value of fine structure constant, the Coulomb attraction gives rise to supercritical atomic collapse in analogy to the phenomena proposed to exist in super-heavy atoms. Moreover, the massless Dirac equation with Coulomb attraction also preserve the scale invariance, which in combination with the quantization effect give rise to a novel feature—the discrete scale invariance. Up to now, the discrete scale invariance confirmed in quantum systems only exist in the Efimov trimers and related physical phenomena, and generates immediate interest throughout related fields.

 
In this talk, I will discuss that the two-body Weyl Hamiltonian with supercritical Coulomb attraction can give rise to Efimovian quasi-bound states with discrete scale invariance. Moreover, the magnetic field introduces a new length scale and breaks the discrete scale invariance of the system down to approximate discrete scale invariance. The formation and dissolution of Efimovian bound states largely change the densities of mobile carriers, and further result in a novel type of log-B periodic magneto-resistance oscillations in Dirac materials, which goes beyond the Landau level physics scenario.
