Large non-reciprocal charge transport mediated by quantum anomalous Hall edge states
July 14, 2020
The quantum anomalous Hall state is characterized by a dissipationless chiral edge current. When slightly carrier-doped, Cr-doped (Bi,Sb)2Te3, a magnetic topological insulator, shows current-direction-dependent resistance with a directional difference up to 26%, which probably originates from scattering between the chiral edge state and the Dirac surface state.
