Weyl electronic scattering, focusing, and resonance by a spherical potential barrier.

Xiao-Xiao Zhang, Ming Lu

We solve the Weyl electron scattered by a spherical step potential. Transport features related to far-field currents and integrated cross sections are studied to reveal the preferred forward scattering. In the quasiclassical regime, a strong focusing effect along the incident spherical axis is found in addition to optical caustic patterns. In the quantum regime, at energies of higher angular momentum resonance, a polar aggregation of electron density is found inside the potential. We expect these findings to be useful in transport studies and electronic lens applications in Weyl systems.
