|Abstract:||Dirac and Weyl semimetals display a host of novel properties. In Cd3As2, the Dirac nodes lead to a protection mechanism that strongly suppresses backscattering in a zero magnetic field, resulting in ultrahigh mobility (similar to 10(7) cm(2) V-1 s(-1)). In an applied magnetic field, an anomalous Nernst effect is predicted to arise from the Berry curvature associated with the Weyl nodes. We report the observation of a large anomalous Nernst effect in Cd3As2. Both the anomalous Nernst signal and transport relaxation time tau(tr) begin to increase rapidly at similar to 50 K. This suggests a close relation between the protection mechanism and the anomalous Nernst effect. In a field, the quantum oscillations of bulk states display a beating effect, suggesting that the Dirac nodes split into Weyl states, allowing the Berry curvature to be observed as an anomalous Nernst effect.|
