Title: New topological states in HgTe quantum wells from defect patterning

Abstract

To explore new methods for the realization of the quantum spin Hall (QSH) effect in two-dimensional (2D) materials, we have constructed a honeycomb geometry (HG) by etching rows of hexagonal holes in HgTe quantum wells (QWs).
