Generic Helical Liquids: the effect of rotation of the spin-quantization axis — •Alexia Rod1, Thomas L. Schmidt2, and Stephan Rachel11Institut für Theoretische Physik, TU Dresden — 2Department of Physics, University of Basel

The generic helical liquid is the most general model of a time-reversal invariant helical liquid without axial spin symmetry. This symmetry is usually broken in experimental realizations, and it has been shown that its absence changes the transport properties significantly [1]. For a translation invariant system, the breaking of axial spin symmetry manifests itself in a rotation of the spin quantization axis with momentum. Its manifestation in real space has, however, remained elusive. Here we consider topological insulator sheets and discs and investigate the non-trivial spin structure of the helical edge states. We further propose how to measure this spin structure and discuss potential applications.
