    The Wannier center sheets provide an insightful visualization of the topological character in a 3D insulator.

    In Weyl semimetals these sheets have the topology of Riemann surfaces displaying the chirality of the nodes.

    hits counter
    The opposite Chirality of the two nodes can also be seen in the Weyl Wannier center sheets.
