Crystal Structure and Chemistry of Topological Insulators
by R.J. Cava, Huiwen Ji, M.K. Fuccillo, Q.D. Gibson, Y.S. Hor

Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 47

Description:
Topological surface states, a new kind of electronic state of matter, have recently been observed on the cleaved surfaces of crystals of a handful of small band gap semiconductors. The goals of this review are to briefly introduce the physics of topological insulators to a chemical audience and to describe the chemistry, defect chemistry, and crystal structures of the compounds in this emergent field.
