Neutron scattering on magnetic topological materials: From topological magnon insulators to emergent many-body effects — •Yixi Su — Jülich Centre for Neutron Science JCNS at MLZ, Forschungszentrum Jülich, 85747 Garching, Germany

Recent theoretical predictions and experimental realizations of exotic fermions and topologically protected phases in condensed matter have led to tremendous research interests in topological quantum materials. Especially, magnetic topological materials, such as magnetic Dirac and Weyl semimetals, and intrinsic magnetic topological insulators etc., in which non-trivial topology of single-electron band structures and electronic correlation effects are often intertwined, have emerged as an exciting platform to explore novel phenomena. Here I will present our recent neutron scattering studies. In the Dirac semimetal EuMnBi2, the evidence for the possible impact of magnetism on Dirac fermions is obtained via a detailed neutron diffraction study of the spin-flop transition [1]. Based on our inelastic neutron scattering study and theoretical analysis of spin-wave excitations, the exotic topological magnon insulators, the bosonic analogs of topological insulators, have been experimentally realized in the two-dimensional van der Waals honeycomb ferromagnets CrSiTe3 and CrGeTe3 [2]. Furthermore, in the magnetic Weyl semimetal Mn3Sn, an unusual magnetic phase transition that is driven by emergent many-body effects is revealed via a combined neutron scattering study and band-structure calculations [3].
