Of these, 11 were metals or semimetals studied as air pollutants.
"Our earlier work on Weyl semimetals paved the path for research on exotic topological conductors," said Hasan.
Here, we will provide a brief introduction to phonon transport in TE materials, which are mostly semiconductors, semimetals, or alloys.

Other possibilities of applications that we may point out could be in the framework of Loop Quantum Gravity, Spin foam, Global effects with continuous deformations, and systems with emergent SUSY, like interesting topological materials such as Weyl semimetals and topological insulators.

Although many different definitions have been proposed to the term "heavy metal," some based on density, some on atomic number or atomic weight, and some on chemical properties [1], the term is often used to denote a group of metals and semimetals (metalloids) that have been associated with contamination and potential toxicity or ecotoxicity.
Weyl semimetals also resemble atom-thick sheets of carbon called graphene, Balents says.
