"Optical and transport properties of geometric metals"

Dmytro Pesin , University of Utah
[Host: Israel Klich ]

The effects of band geometry on measurable properties of electronic systems have been one of the central subjects in the recent history of condensed matter physics. In this talk, I will describe how non-trivial topology and, more generally, geometry of gapless electronic phases manifest in their optical and transport characteristics.  The main focus of the talk will be on optical anomalous Hall effect and optical activity of Weyl metals, kinetic magnetoelectric effect in noncentrosymmetric conductors, as well as disorder physics in these materials.
