Sandia Quantum Transport Article Was the 12th Most Downloaded Paper from AIP’s Applied Physics Letters in February

Research on topological insulators (TIs) has drawn intensive interests. The type-II InAs/GaSb heterostructure, due to its unusual alignment of the conduction and valence band edges of InAs and GaSb, is predicted to be a two-dimensional (2D) TI. σxx vs σxy at B = 20 T (blue dots), 25 T (black squares), and 30 T (red diamonds). Gray circles are [...]
