Title: Exotic Phenomena in Quantum limit in nodal-line semimetal ZrSiS

Abstract

In quantum limit, all carriers condense to the lowest Landau level, leading to possible exotic quantum phenomena such as Lifshitz transition and density waves. Usually, quantum limit is not easily achieved due to relatively large Fermi surface in metals. Fortunately, the nodal-line semimetal ZrSiS possesses a very small Fermi pocket with a characteristic quantum oscillation frequency of 8.4T, which represents the 2D Dirac states protected by non-symmorphic symmetry. The quantum limit of such Dirac bands can be reached in moderate magnetic field ~25T, indicating that ZrSiS could be a nice platform to explore the novel quantum phenomena of Dirac fermions in quantum limit.
