摘要:Quasiparticles and collective modes are two fundamental aspects that characterize quantum matter in addition to its ground-state features. For example, the low-energy physics for Fermi-liquid phase in He-III is featured not only by fermionic quasiparticles near the chemical potential but also by fruitful collective modes in the long-wave limit, including several different sound waves that can propagate through it under different circumstances. On the other hand, it is very difficult for sound waves to be carried by electron liquid in ordinary metals due to the fact that long-range Coulomb interaction among electrons will generate a plasmon gap for ordinary electron density oscillation and thus prohibits the propagation of sound waves through it. In the present paper, we propose a unique type of acoustic collective mode in Weyl semimetals under magnetic field called chiral zero sound. Chiral zero sound can be stabilized under the so-called “chiral limit,” where the intravalley scattering time is much shorter than the intervalley one and propagates only along an external magnetic field for Weyl semimetals with multiple pairs of Weyl points. The sound velocity of chiral zero sound is proportional to the field strength in the weak field limit, whereas it oscillates dramatically in the strong field limit, generating an entirely new mechanism for quantum oscillations through the dynamics of neutral bosonic excitation, which may manifest itself in the thermal conductivity measurements under magnetic field.
