Title  Designing Topological Phase of Bismuth Halides and Controlling Rashba Effect in Films Studied by ARPES 
Author(s)  Noguchi, Ryo 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XV, 126 p. 81 illus., 80 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the observation and the control of spinpolarized electrons in Rashba thin films and topological insulators, including the first observations of a weak topological insulator (WTI) and a higherorder topological insulator (HOTI) in bismuth halides. It begins with a general review of electronic structures at the solid surface and mentions that an electron spin at a surface is polarized due to the Rashba effect or topological insulator states with strong spinorbit coupling. Subsequently it describes the experimental techniques used to study these effects, that is, angleresolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). Further it moves its focus onto the experimental investigations, in which mainly two different systems???noble metal thin films with the Rashba effects and bismuth halides topological insulators???are used. The study of the first system discusses the role of wavefunctions in spinsplitting and demonstrates a scaling law for the Rashba effect in quantum well films for the first time. Highresolution spinresolved ARPES plays a vital role in systematically trace the thicknessevolution of the effect. The study of the latter material is the first experimental demonstration of both a WTI and HOTI state in bismuth iodide and bismuth bromide, respectively. Importantly, nanoARPES with high spatial resolution is used to confirm the topological surface states on the side surface of the crystal, which is the hallmark of WTIs. The description of the basic and recentlydeveloped ARPES technique with spinresolution or spatialresolution, essential in investigating spinpolarized electrons at a crystal surface, makes the book a valuable source for researchers not only in surface physics or topological materials but also in spintronics and other condensedmatter physics

Title  NonBloch Band Theory of NonHermitian Systems 
Author(s)  Yokomizo, Kazuki 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 92 p. 25 illus., 23 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book constructs a nonBloch band theory and studies physics described by nonHermitian Hamiltonian in terms of the theory proposed here. In nonHermitian crystals, the author introduces the nonBloch band theory which produces an energy spectrum in the limit of a large system size. The energy spectrum is then calculated from a generalized Brillouin zone for a complex Bloch wave number. While a generalized Brillouin zone becomes a unit circle on a complex plane in Hermitian systems, it becomes a circle with cusps in nonHermitian systems. Such unique features of the generalized Brillouin zone realize remarkable phenomena peculiar in nonHermitian systems. Further the author reveals rich aspects of nonHermitian physics in terms of the nonBloch band theory. First, a topological invariant defined by a generalized Brillouin zone implies the appearance of topological edge states. Second, a topological semimetal phase with exceptional points appears, The topological semimetal phase is unique to nonHermitian systems because it is caused by the deformation of the generalized Brillouin zone by changes of system parameters. Third, the author reveals a certain relationship between the nonBloch waves and nonHermitian topology

Title  Emergence in Condensed Matter and Quantum Gravity : A Nontechnical Review 
Author(s)  Musser, George 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 95 p. 7 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book surveys the science at a semipopular, Scientific Americanlevel. It is evenhanded with regard to competing directions of research and philosophical positions. It is hard to get even two people to agree on anything, yet a million billion water molecules can suddenly and abruptly coordinate to lock themselves into an ice crystal or liberate one another to billow outwards as steam. The marvelous selforganizing capacity of matter is one of the central and deepest puzzles of physics, with implications for all the natural sciences. Physicists in the past century have found a remarkable diversity of phases of matter???and equally remarkable commonalities within that diversity. The pace of discovery has, if anything, only quickened in recent years with the appreciation of quantum phases of matter and socalled topological order. The study of seemingly humdrum materials has made contact with the more exotic realm of quantum gravity, as theorists realize that the spacetime continuum may itself be a phase of some deeper and still unknown constituents. These developments flesh out the sometimes vague concept of the emergence???how exactly it is that complexity begets simplicity

Title  Discovery of Coexisting Noncollinear Spin Textures in D2d Heusler Compounds 
Author(s)  Jena, Jagannath 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXI, 133 p. 70 illus., 60 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Noncollinear spin textures have attracted significant attention due to their topological nature, emergent electromagnetic properties, and potential spintronic and magnonic device applications. This book explores the physical properties of distinct spin textures in D2d compounds. The main goals of the work are (a) discovering new spin textures in D2d Heusler compounds and studying their detailed properties to enrich the field of noncollinear magnetism (b) optimizing the nanotrack geometry and generating isolated and single chains of nanoobjects that will establish new hallmarks for technological applications (c) studying the stability of spin textures with magnetic fields and temperatures and finding a way to observe the striking behavior of spin textures near the specimen edges. The first few chapters provide a brief overview of spin textures such as Bloch and N??el skyrmions. In the experimental methods section, the author shows how to identify the singlecrystalline grains of a polycrystalline sample, how to make singlecrystalline thin specimens and nanotracks, and then provides explicit descriptions of different imaging techniques performed on a transmission electron microscope. This part will be valuable for beginners wishing to conduct research in experimental nanomagnetism and transmission electron microscope imaging. The core results of the book are presented in four chapters, describing the discovery of several new and unanticipated spin textures, namely squareshaped antiskyrmions, elliptical Bloch skyrmions, fractional antiskyrmions, fractional Bloch skyrmions and elongated (anti)skyrmions in a single D2d Heusler compound. It is shown that these textures can be understood by a combination of dipoledipole interactions and a chiral vector exchange that makes it possible to stabilize various spin textures even in the same compound. The D2d compounds are the first noncentrosymmetric systems shown to host several coexisting noncollinear spin textures

Title  Exploration of Quantum Transport Phenomena via Engineering Emergent Magnetic Fields in Topological Magnets 
Author(s)  Fujishiro, Yukako 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Nature Singapore, 2021. 
Description  XIII, 92 p. 65 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses novel electronic and thermoelectronic properties arising from topological spin textures as well as topologically nontrivial electronic structures. In particular, it focuses on a unique topological spin texture, i.e., spin hedgehog lattice, emerging in a chiral magnet and explore its novel properties which are distinct from the conventional skyrmion lattice, and discusses the possibility of realizing hightemperature quantum anomalous Hall effect through quantum confinement effect in topological semimetal. This book benefits students and researchers working in the field of condensed matter physics, through providing comprehensive understanding of the current status and the outlook in the field of topological magnets

Title  Electronic Properties of Rhombohedral Graphite 
Author(s)  Ozdemir, Servet 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XV, 132 p. 66 illus., 54 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first systematic electron transport investigation of rhombohedral graphite (RG) films and thus lies at the interface of graphene physics, vdW heterostructure devices and topological matter. Electron transport investigation into the rhombohedral phase of graphite was limited to a few layers of graphene due to the competing hexagonal phase being more abundant. This work reports that in exfoliated natural graphite films, rhombohedral domains of up to 50 layers can be found. In the low energy limit, these domains behave as an Nlayer generalisation of graphene. Moreover, being a potential alternative to twisted bilayer graphene systems, RG films show a spontaneous metalinsulator transition, with characteristic symmetry properties that could be described by meanfield theory where superconductivity is also predicted in these low energy bands. A nodalline semimetal in the bulk limit, RG thin films are a 3D generalisation of the simplest topological insulator model: the SuSchriefferHeeger chain. Similar to the more usual topological insulators, RG films exhibit parallel conduction of bulk states, which undergo threedimensional quantum transport that reflects bulk topology

Title  Equilibrium Statistical Physics : Phases, Phase Transitions, and Topological Phases 
Author(s)  Baus, Marc;Tejero, Carlos F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVI, 437 p. 119 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook gradually introduces students to the statistical mechanical study of the different phases of matter and to the phase transitions between them. It uses simple yet fully detailed models of both hard and soft matter systems to demonstrate core concepts, developing the subject matter in a thorough and accessible pedagogical manner throughout. Starting from an introduction to basic thermodynamics and statistical physics, the book progresses from ideal, noninteracting systems to real systems exhibiting classical interactions and phase transitions. It concludes with a selection of more advanced topics, such as the renormalisation group approach to critical phenomena, the density functional theory of interfaces, and kinematic aspects of the phase transformation process. This updated second edition features a considerably expanded study of the topology of the phases, including applications to modern problems such as topological defects of nematic liquid crystals and the topological phase transition of a twodimensional spin system. Along with a complete introductory overview of the theory of phase transitions, this textbook provides students with ample material for deeper study. References include suggestions for more detailed treatments and six appendices supply overviews of the mathematical tools employed in the text

Title  Reshaping of Dirac Cones in Topological Insulators and Graphene 
Author(s)  D??az Fern??ndez, ??lvaro 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXVI, 183 p. 56 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Dirac cones are ubiquitous to nontrivial quantum matter and are expected to boost and reshape the field of modern electronics. Particularly relevant examples where these cones arise are topological insulators and graphene. From a fundamental perspective, this thesis proposes schemes towards modifying basic properties of these cones in the aforementioned materials. The thesis begins with a brief historical introduction which is followed by an extensive chapter that endows the reader with the basic tools of symmetry and topology needed to understand the remaining text. The subsequent four chapters are devoted to the reshaping of Dirac cones by external fields and delta doping. At all times, the ideas discussed in the second chapter are always a guiding principle to understand the phenomena discussed in those four chapters. As a result, the thesis is cohesive and represents a major advance in our understanding of the physics of Dirac materials
