Abstract (English)

Topological insulators in two dimensions have received much attention recently because they are theoretically expected to show properties that make them very attractive for spintronics applications. For example, they feature spin-momentum-locked edge states which are protected from elastic backscattering. However, current experiments are not able to unambiguously observe all of these predicted ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Zweidimensionale topologische Isolatoren rufen in letzter Zeit großes Interesse hervor, da sie in der Theorie sehr interessante Eigenschaften aufweisen, die auf ein großes Potenzial für spintronische Anwendungen hoffen lassen. So weisen sie beispielsweise Randzustände auf, bei welchen die Spinrichtung an die Bewegungsrichtung gekoppelt ist und welche außerdem nicht elastisch zurückgestreut werden ...
