Quantum anomalous Hall effect

Prof. Shoucheng Zhang

JG Jackson and CJ Wood Professor of Physics

Department of Physics, Stanford University

Discovery of the quantum spin Hall effect and topological insulator has inspired us to theoretically predict the quantized anomalous Hall (QAH) effect in magnetic topological insulators without external magnetic field. Recently this effect has been experimentally discovered in Cr doped topological insulator (BiSb)2Te3. In this talk, Professor Zhang will discuss the theory and experiment of the QAH.
