Abstract
The three-dimensional (3D) Dirac semimetals as a new class of emerging quantum materials have attracted considerable attention owing to their exotic electronic properties. Their unique energy band structure makes the Dirac-Weyl semimetals a source of many intriguing physical phenomena. As Dirac semimetals hold gapless linear band dispersion in bulk, it is expected to exhibit controllable p−n junction devices with two gates as performed in graphene devices, which has not been done yet. In this work, we demonstrated a controllable p−n junction in a 3D Dirac semimetal Cd3As2 nanowire with two recessed bottom gates. The device showed clear four different conductance regimes with two gate voltages, confirming that the device forms a p−n junction. Remarkably, the device showed very interesting behavior when strong magnetic fields are applied. In the bipolar regime (p−n or n−p), the device showed quantum dot behavior due to the suppression of Klein tunneling. On the other hand, the device revealed clear conductance plateaus in the n−n regime owing to the edge states associated with the cyclotron motion of carriers at high magnetic fields.
