报告摘要:Recent advances in ultrafast spectroscopy open a route toward engineering new phase of solids with optical pumping. The nonequilibrium electronic states of solids periodically driven by the electromagnetic field manifest a novel way of engineering topological states which don't exist at equilibrium conditions. Firstly, using first-principles calculations and Floquet theorem, we studied the dressed states of black phosphorous and graphene under periodic driving by incident light. Secondly, the lattice dynamics of type-II Weyl semimetal WTe2 under linearly polarized light was studied. It is found that the WTe2 exhibiting unexpected orbital-selective photoexcitation have been induced striking transition among several topologically-distinct phases mediated by effective electron-phonon coupling. The switchable interlayer shear motion depending on the incident light polarization lead to not only the annihilation of Weyl quasiparticle pairs, but the controllable separation of Weyl points. Our works show new prospective on manipulating the topologically-distinct phase by using coherent control of electrons and lattices dynamics simultaneously.
