Chiral anomaly in 3D Weyl semimetals
●
Chiral(Adler-Bell-Jackiw) anomaly: for simplest Weyl
semimetal,
the right/left-handed Weyl fermion number are not
conserved under EM field,
–
Semiclassical picture:
1D chiral anomaly on n=0 LL,
LL degeneracy
–
If there are back-scattering,
this will produce a steady current and lead to negative
magnetoresistance(MR)
[DTSon&Spivak, PhysRevB'13]
–
This effect also applies to gapless Dirac semimetal.
