Coexistence of Strong and Weak Topological Orders in a Quasi-One-Dimensional Material
Sprache des Titels:
Topological materials have broad application prospects in quantum computing and spintronic devices. Among them, dual topological materials with low dimensionality provide an excellent platform for manipulating various topological states and generating highly conductive spin currents. However, direct observation of their topological surface states still lacks. Here, we reveal the coexistence of the strong and weak topological phases in a quasi-one-dimensional material, TaNiTe5, by spin- and angle- resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The surface states protected by weak topological order forms Dirac-node arcs in the vicinity of the Fermi energy, providing the opportunity to develop spintronics devices with high carrier density that is tunable by bias voltage.
