I understand that the centring of the Fermi energy at the Dirac point is a highly sought after property in Topological Insulators but I'm unsure as to exactly why? I see that the state at the conical intercept will be unique but I'm not sure of what is theorised to happen to the electrons occupying this state and what unique properties will be transferred upon the electrons that do occupy it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
