报告摘要:I will introduce my recent work which unveiled a magnetic exchange induced Weyl state in semimetal EuCd2Sb2, a member in type IV magnetic space group, via performing high magnetic field magneto-transport measurements and ab initio calculations. For the A-type antiferromagnetic (AFM) structure of both compounds, the external magnetic field (B) larger than 3.2 T can align the Eu spins to be fully polarized along the crystallographic c-axis and consequently drive the system into a ferromagnetic (FM) state, associated by a phase transition from a small-gap AFM topological insulator into a FM Weyl semimetal. Fermi arcs connected the Weyl points are also revealed by the calculations. I will also briefly introduce my recent growth of high-quality crystals of various quantum materials.
