I. The Ordinary and Anomalous Hall Effects

Hall, E. H., 1879, Amer. J. Math. 2, 287

The Ordinary Hall Effect

VH

Charged particles moving through a magnetic field experience a force

Force causes a build up of charge on the sides of the material, and a potential across it

The Anomalous Hall Effect

VH

“Pressing effect” much greater in ferromagnetic materials

Additional term predicts Hall voltage in the absence of a magnetic field

Anomalous Hall Data

Where ρxx is the longitudinal resistivity and β is 1 or 2

II. The Aharonov-Bohm Effect and Berry Phase Curvature

Vector Potentials

Maxwell’s Equations can also be written in terms of vector potentials A and φ

Schrödinger’s Equation for an Electron travelling around a Solenoid

Where

For a solenoid

Solution:

Where

ψ’ solves the Schrodinger’s equation in the absence of a vector potential

Key: A wave function in the presence of a vector potential picks up an additional phase relating to the integral around the potential

Vector Potentials and Interference a Solenoid

If no magnetic field, phase difference is equal to the difference in path length

If we turn on the magnetic field:

There is an additional phase difference!

Experimental Realization a Solenoid

Interference fringes due to biprism

Critical condition:

Due to magnetic flux tapering in the whisker, we expect to see a tilt in the fringes

Useful to measure extremely small magnetic fluxes

Berry Phase Curvature a Solenoid

For electrons in a periodic lattice potential:

The vector potential in k-space is:

Berry Curvature (Ω) defined as:

Phase difference of an electron moving in a closed path in k-space:

An electron moving in a potential with non-zero Berry curvature picks up a phase!

A Classical Analog a Solenoid

Non-Zero Berry Curvature

Zero Berry Curvature

Parallel transport of a vector on a curved surface ending at the starting point results in a phase shift!

Anomalous Velocity a Solenoid

VH

E

Systems with a non-zero Berry Curvature acquire a velocity component perpendicular to the electric field!

How do we get a non-zero Berry Curvature?

By breaking time reversal symmetry

Time Reversal Symmetry (TRS) a Solenoid

Time reversal (τ) reverses the arrow of time

A system is said to have time reversal symmetry if nothing changes when time is reversed

Even quantities with respect to TRS:

Odd quantities with respect to TRS:

The Quantum Hall Trio a Solenoid

The Quantum Hall Effect a Solenoid

- Nobel Prize Klaus von Klitzing (1985)
- At low T and large B
- Hall Voltage vs. Magnetic Field nonlinear
- The RH=VH/I is quantized
- RH=Rk/n
- Rk=h/e2
=25,813 ohms, n=1,2,3,…

- Rk=h/e2

What changes in the Quantum Hall Effect? a Solenoid

- Radius r= m*v/qB
- Increasing B, decreases r
- As collisions increase, Hall resistance increases
- Pauli Exclusion Principle
- Orbital radii are quantized (by de Broglie wavelengths)

The Quantum Spin Hall Effect a Solenoid

The Quantum Spin Hall Effect a Solenoid

König et, al

V. The Quantum Anomalous Hall Effect a Solenoid

Breaking TRS a Solenoid

- Breaking TRS suppresses one of the channels in the spin Hall state
- Addition of magnetic moment
- Cr(Bi1-xSbx)2Te3

Observations a Solenoid

No magnetic field!

As resistance in the lateral direction becomes quantized, longitudinal resistance goes to zero

Vg0 corresponds to a Fermi level in the gap and a new topological state

VI. Future Directions a Solenoid
