Surface chiral excitations in time-reversal broken crystals — •Claudio Benzoni — TUM, Munich, Germany
We have studied an elastic model analogous to the isotropic body but in which the dynamics is non-Newtonian. In the long-wavelength regime this gapless model exhibits non-linear dispersing Rayleigh excitations that propagate in a chiral fashion. We found out that the chirality of the surface waves is determined by an interplay between the elasticity and the term that violates time-reversal symmetry and not only by the sign of the latter. Three regimes have been identified. Realizations of this model can be in two-dimensional Wigner crystals and in gyroscopic metamaterials.
