We consider the Z2 topology of the Dirac lines, i.e., lines of band contacts, on an example of graphite. Four lines—three with topological charge N1 = 1each and one with N1 = -1—merge together near the H-point and annihilate due to summation law1 ++-= 1110. The merging point is similar to the real-space nexus, an analog of the Dirac monopole at which the Z2 strings terminate.

Existence of zero-energy impurity states in different classes of topological insulators and superconductors and their relation to topological phase transitions Kimme, Lukas; Hyart, Timo (American Physical Society, 2016)We consider the effects of impurities on topological insulators and superconductors. We start by identifying the general conditions under which the eigenenergies of an arbitrary Hamiltonian H belonging to one of ...
Preparation of Highly Porous Carbonous Electrodes by Selective Laser Sintering Lahtinen, Elmeri; Kukkonen, Esa Petteri; Jokivartio, Joonas; Parkkonen, Joni; Virkajärvi, Jussi; Kivijärvi, Lauri; Ahlskog, Markus; Haukka, Matti (American Chemical Society, 2019)Selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printing was utilized to fabricate highly porous carbonous electrodes. The electrodes were prepared by using a mixture of fine graphite powder and either polyamide-12, polystyrene, or ...
