Infrared magnetospectroscopy of twodimensional and threedimensional massless fermions: A comparison
Abstract
Here, we report on a magnetooptical study of two distinct systems hosting massless fermions—twodimensional graphene and threedimensional HgCdTe tuned to the zero band gap condition at the point of the semiconductortosemimetal topological transition. Both materials exhibit, in the quantum regime, a fairly rich magnetooptical response, which is composed from a series of intra and interband interLandau level resonances with for massless fermions typical √(B) dependence. The impact of the system's dimensionality and of the strength of the spinorbit interaction on the optical response is also discussed.

Magnetoinfrared spectroscopy of Landau levels and Zeeman splitting of threedimensional massless Dirac Fermions in ZrTe _{5}
We present a magnetoinfrared spectroscopy study on a newly identified threedimensional (3D) Dirac semimetal ZrTe _{5}. We observe clear transitions between Landau levels and their further splitting under a magnetic field. Both the sequence of transitions and their field dependence follow quantitatively the relation expected for 3D massless Dirac fermions. The measurement also reveals an exceptionally low magnetic field needed to drive the compound into its quantum limit, demonstrating that ZrTe _{5} is an extremely clean system and ideal platform for studying 3D Dirac fermions. The splitting of the Landau levels provides direct, bulk spectroscopic evidence that a relatively weakmore »Cited by 52 
Spectroscopy of dipolar fermions in layered twodimensional and threedimensional lattices
Motivated by ongoing measurements at JILA, we calculate the recoilfree spectra of dipolar interacting fermions, for example ultracold heteronuclear molecules, in a onedimensional lattice of twodimensional layers or ''pancakes'', spectroscopically probing transitions between different internal (e.g., rotational) states. We additionally incorporate pwave interactions and losses, which are important for reactive molecules such as KRb. Moreover, we consider other sources of spectral broadening: interactioninduced quasiparticle lifetimes and the different polarizabilities of the rotational states used for the spectroscopy. Although our main focus is molecules, some of the calculations are also useful for optical lattice atomic clocks. For example, understanding the pwavemore » 
Massless fermions and (2+1)dimensional gravitational effective action
The threedimensional gravitational effective action due to a massless fermion coupled to a weak gravitational field is calculated. Radiative corrections induce the parityviolating gravitational ChernSimons term.
