Title: Magnetotransport study of Dirac fermions in YbMnBi 2 antiferromagnet

Abstract

We report quantum transport and Dirac fermions in YbMnBi 2 single crystals. YbMnBi 2 is a layered material with anisotropic conductivity and magnetic order below 290 K. Magnetotransport properties, nonzero Berry phase, and small cyclotron mass indicate the presence of Dirac fermions. Lastly, angular-dependent magnetoresistance indicates a possible quasi-two-dimensional Fermi surface, whereas the deviation from the nontrivial Berry phase expected for Dirac states suggests the contribution of parabolic bands at the Fermi level or spin-orbit coupling.
