Experimental evidence of a new class of massless fermions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The discovery of graphene with its massless fermions established a new branch of nanomaterials in which linear bands can be realized. It has been predicted that beside Dirac fermions revealing isotropic character and observed in a number of two-dimensional materials, another class of massless fermions can also be found: strongly anisotropic fortune teller-like states which form planes instead of cones in the electronic structure. Here, we demonstrate that such distinct electronic structures exist and can be found in a surface layer of silicon.
