Surface-state spin textures and mirror Chern numbers in topological Kondo insulators

13 Oct 2015 Legner Markus Rüegg Andreas Sigrist Manfred

The recent discovery of topological Kondo insulators has triggered renewed interest in the well-known Kondo insulator samarium hexaboride, which is hypothesized to belong to this family. In this Letter, we study the spin texture of the topologically protected surface states in such a topological Kondo insulator... (read more)
