Author(s): Peng Cheng, Philipp W. Klein, Kirill Plekhanov, Klaus Sengstock, Monika Aidelsburger, Christof Weitenberg, and Karyn Le HurWe reveal a proximity effect between a topological band (Chern) insulator described by a Haldane model and spin-polarized Dirac particles of a graphene layer. Coupling weakly the two systems through a tunneling term in the bulk, the topological Chern insulator induces a gap and an opposite Chern num…[Phys. Rev. B 100, 081107(R)] Published Tue Aug 13, 2019
