Topological band theory

Datum: 18 mei 2017

Locatie: UAntwerp, Campus Groenenborger, Building U, room U.241 - Groenenborgerlaan 171 - 2020 Antwerpen (route: UAntwerpen, Campus Groenenborger)

Tijdstip: 16 - 17 uur

Organisatie / co-organisatie: Condensed Matter Theory

Korte beschrijving: Condensed Matter Theory seminar presented by Dr Ortwin Leenaerts

I will give an overview of topological band theory through some simple two-band model systems. I will start from diatomic molecules and the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model for polyacetylene and extrapolate the physics of these models to graphene and 3D Weyl semimetals.
