Magnetization of topological line-node semimetals

27 Jan 2018  ·  Mikitik G. P., Sharlai Yu. V. ·

Using an approximate expression for the Landau levels of the electrons located near a nodal line of a topological line-node semimetal, we obtain formulas for the magnetization of this semimetal at an arbitrary shape of its line. It is also shown that the dependence of the chemical potential on the magnetic field can be strong in these materials, and this dependence can essentially influence the de Haas - van Alphen oscillations... The obtained results are applied to the rhombohedral graphite which is one of the line-node semimetals. For this material, we find temperature and magnetic field dependences of its magnetic susceptibility. read more
