报告摘要:Topological semimetals (including Dirac/Weyl semimetals and line-node semimetals), as opposed to topological insulators, exhibit exotic phenomena both in their bulk and on their surfaces. In this talk, I will first give a brief introduction to Weyl and line-node semimetals. Then I will present our recent work on line-node semimetals. We found a new type of line-node semimetal, dubbed hybrid line-node semimetals, which is distinct from the existing type-I and type-II line-node semimetals. We performed a systematic study on the circularly polarized light-induced Floquet states in different types of line-node semimetals. We illustrate that two distinct types of Floquet WSM states can be induced in periodically driven line-node semimetals by tuning the direction and the intensity of the incident light.
