Material realizations of timereversal symmetry (TRS-breaking TCFs is still absent but are predicted to be found in magnetically ordered systems. In this work, we analyse the density current response functions for linear TCFs in non-interacting interacting limits. Linear Response: When a system is subjected to a time space dependent electric field (or potential, the field couples with the charge degree of freedom of electrons drives the system into a non-equilibrium phase. The system responds by modifying its charge density induction of charge currents. If the strength of the external field is small enough to be treated as a perturbation, the response function is obtained from the Kubo formula 6. For stronger fields, the system shows nonlinear response 7 may give rise to Floquet bs 8 5. The Kubo formula usually holds good for the typical amplitudes of electric fields used in the experiments. It is used to obtain current density responses of the system, which are given by its conductivity polarizability respectively. The polarizability relates the induced density fluctuation of the electron gas to the external potential, while the conductivity relates the induced current to the external field. The conductivity can be calculated from the polarizability vice-versa. The polarizability function in momentum-frequency space is called the Lindhard function 5. The imaginary part of Lindhard function is a measure of energy absorbed by the system. The electron gas allows absorption for a range of momentum frequency, which is attributed to intrab or interb particle-hole excitations across the Fermi sea. This region in the momentum-frequency space is called the particle-hole continuum (PHC. At T, energy is not absorbed from the field for frequencies momenta outside the PHC. The shape of the PHC depends on the the chemical potential, b structure overlap factor between the bs. On inclusion of Coulomb interaction between the electrons, the Lindhard function gets renormalized by the dielectric function within Rom Phase Approximation (RPA The renormalization gives rise to plasarxiv:9.595v cond-mat.mes-hall] Sep We investigate the nature of density response of linear triple component fermions by computing the Lindhard function, dielectric function, plasmon mode long wavelength optical conductivity of the system compare the results with those of Weyl fermions three dimensional free electron gas. Linear triple component fermions are the low energy quasiparticles of linear triple component semimetals, consisting of linearly dispersive dispersionless (flat b excitations. The presence of flat b brings about notable modifications in the response properties with respect to Weyl fermions such as induction of a new region in the particle-hole continuum, reduced plasmon energy gap, shift in absorption edge, enhanced rate of increase in energy absorption with frequency forbidden intercone transitions in the long wavelength limit. The plasmon dispersion follows the usual ω ω ω q nature as observed in most of the three dimensional electronic systems. I. INTRODUCTION Three dimensional semimetals having linear energy spectra around the Fermi level viz. Weyl Dirac 6, semimetals have become breeding grounds for plethora of intriguing physical phenomena such as Fermi arc surface states, chiral anomaly, anomalous Hall effect 5 etc. The quasiparticles close to the b-crossing nodes act as condensed-matter versions of Weyl 6 massless Dirac 7 fermions theorized in high-energy physics. Recent studies have unveiled other classes of topoical semimetals where more than two bs cross at a node exhibit fermionic excitations with no counterpart in high energy physics 8. It is speculated that mirror discrete rotational symmetries in symmorphic crystals may lead to topoically protected three-fold degenerate crossing points,. First-principles calculations 7 have shown that materials such as TaN, MoP, WC, RhSi, RhGe ZrTe can host three-b crossings in the neighborhood of the Fermi level 5,8. In this paper, we deal with one such class of semimetals with three-b crossings, where quasiparticles around the nodes transform under pseudospin- representation. These are called triplecomponent semimetals (TCSs their low energy excitations are called triple component fermions (TCFs. The pseudospin degrees of freedom may emerge from specific admixtures of orbital spin projections 8,,5. The dynamics of the TCFs are governed by the Hamiltonian H(k = d(k S, where S = (S x, S y, S z denote the usual spin- matrices d(k is a vector function of k. The b structure consists of two dispersive bs a flat b. The TCFs can be grouped into linear, quadratic cubic, depending on the form of d(k. For linear TCFs, the energy scales linearly with all the three components of momentum. For quadratic cubic TCFs, the energy scales linearly with k z, but as k k respectively in the k x-k y plane, where k = kx ky. Time-reversal symmetric TCFs arise in materials with space group symmetry 99, e.g.

2 mon modes 5 which are perceived as collective oscillations of the interacting electrons in the uniform positively charged background of the system (jellium model. They correspond to the poles of the renormalized Lindhard function or the zeroes of the dielectric function. They may be grouped into gapped or gapless modes, which require finite infinitesimal amounts of energy respectively to be excited at long wavelengths (q. The curve in momentum-frequency space along which the dielectric function vanishes is called the plasmon dispersion. Plasmons can be excited at wavelengths frequencies given by the plasmon dispersion. They are probed using inelastic scattering experiments such as electron energy loss spectroscopy 59. The dimensionality b structure of the system play crucial roles in determining the plasmon dispersion. It has been studied that D electron systems such as D free electron gas (FEG 58, graphene 6 66 dice lattice 67 (D pseudospin- system host a gapless plasmon mode with dispersion q at long wavelengths. In contrast, D FEG 68, D noncentrosymmetric metals 69 doped Weyl 7,7 Dirac semimetals 7 7 exhibit gapped plasmon modes dispersing as ω ω q in the long wavelength limit, where ω ω are constants with appropriate dimensions. However, the study of response functions plasmons in TCSs is still unexplored. We fill this gap in the research by making a comprehensive analysis of the Lindhard function, PHC, dielectric function optical conductivity for linear isotropic TCFs compare the results with those of Weyl fermions D FEG. Furthermore, we derive approximate analytical expression of Lindhard function plasmon dispersion in the long wavelength limit. We investigate the interplay of three bs the effect of flat b in particular in the response functions. For the rest of the paper, TCF Weyl fermions/semimetals would refer to linear isotropic TCF isotropic type-i Weyl fermions/semimetals repectively. This paper is organized as follows. In Sec. (II, we review the low energy b structure eigenstates of TCF. In Sec. (III A, we obtain the Lindhard function PHC of doped linear TCS. The calculation of dielectric function plasmon modes of the system are shown in Sec. (III B. A discussion on optical conductivity is presented in Sec. (III C. Finally, the results are summarized in Sec. (IV. II. MODEL HAMILTONIAN The Hamiltonian of TCFs around a b touching node is given by H(k = v F S k. ( Here, v F is the Fermi velocity S = (S x, S y, S z denotes the usual spin- matrices. The b structure comprises of three bs viz. E k = v F k (conduction b, E k = v F k (valence b E k = (flat b.

Like Weyl semimetals, the PHC for intrab transitions within the conduction b is bounded by ω = Q, ω = ω = Q lines, while the interb transitions between valence conduction bs occur in the region bounded by ω = Q ω = Q lines. The flat b introduces a new region of PHC which is absent in Weyl semimetals. The PHC for interb transitions between the flat conduction bs is above ω = line. So, the flat-to-conduction PHC overlaps those of intercone intracone ones. These features were observed in dice lattice also 67. The FIG. : Density plot of the natural arithm of Im χ(q, Ω] as functions of Q Ω for TCF. numerical plot of natural arithm of Im χ(q, Ω] as functions of Q ω (shown in Fig.] reveals the characteristics of the PHC reasonably well albeit the sharp demarcations of different regions of absorption. The static Lindhard function Re χ(q, ] as a function of Q is plotted in Fig.( for TCF, Weyl semimetals D FEG. The function rises monotonically with Q for both TCF Weyl fermions with the slope being higher in the former. This nature is contrary to that of FEG where the function decreases monotonically with Q with a slope discontinuity at ω =. B.

Substituting the real part of the above expression in Eq.(6 gives C ( ω p ( Λ ( Λ ] ( ( ω p ( O(( ω p ( =. Considering ω p ( i.e ω p ( E F, we neglect the terms of the order of ( ω p ( higher in the above equation to get the plasmon gap as ω ( p = C. ( C Λ The plasmon gap depends on the cut-off Λ. For Λ =,.. In terms of E F, we have Ω ( p ω ( p = E F C. ( C Λ So, plasmon gap is linearly proportional to E F for large values of E F. The variation of Re ε(q, Ω] with ω is shown in Fig.(8 for TCF, Weyl semimetals FEG. The points marked by small circles are the plasmon energy gaps for the respective systems. The gaps show the following trend : ( ω p ( TCF < ( ω p ( Weyl < ( ω p ( FEG. Hence, for the same set of parameters, the plasmon gap of TCFs is smaller than that of (doped Weyl semimetal. The approximate plasmon dispersion in the long wavelength regime can be obtained by taking into account higher order terms of Eq.(7. The plasmon dispersion

The plasmon mode can be spotted as the bright curve originating outside the PHC finally merging into it. The part of the plasmon mode outside the PHC is undamped while that inside the PHC gets damped into particle-hole excitations, acquiring a finite lifetime.

The agreement between the two solutions holds good for low Q as expected. C. OPTICAL CONDUCTIVITY The optical conductivities in the non-interacting interacting limits are related to the respective Lindhard FIG. : Plots of Re σ i (Q, Ω] vs ω for TCF, Weyl semimetals FEG. Electron-electron interaction induces sharp peaks in the optical conductivities, which correspond to the plasmon modes.

The real part of optical conductivity corresponds to dissipation/absorption of energy in the medium.

8 8 Re σ(q, Ω] Re σ i (Q, Ω] with ω for TCFs, Weyl semimetals D FEG are plotted in Figs.(9 ( respectively. The zero frequency peak accounts for the intrab absorption is evident in all the three systems. The interb absorption edges of TCF Weyl semimetals commence at ω = E F ω = E F respectively the absorption grows linearly with frequency. For TCF, the absorption edge corresponds to the onset of flat-to-conduction absorption whereas for Weyl semimetals, it indicates valence-to-conduction (or intercone absorption. The intercone absorption of TCF vanishes in the Q limit since χ vc (Q, Ω is of the order of Q for small Q see Eq.(], which makes σ vc (Q, Ω O ( Q. In the interacting limit, the zero frequency peak vanishes new peaks emerge at frequencies corresponding to the plasmon gaps. The magnitudes of interb absorption gets suppressed for both Weyl fermions TCF but the location of the absorption edges remain unaltered. IV. CONCLUSION We have explored the Lindhard function, PHC, loss function, plasmon mode optical conductivity of TCF compared the results with those of Weyl fermions D free electron gas. The flat b endows the response functions with several new features which were absent in Weyl semimetals. The PHC gets extended due to transitions between flat conduction bs which occur for frequencies above E F /. An approximate expression for low energy plasmon dispersion has been derived within RPA using small Q expansion of the Lindhard function. The dominant contributions to the Lindhard function are of the order of Q which represent intra-conduction b flat-to-conduction transitions, while valence-to-conduction transitions are of the order of Q. The plasmon frequency shows the usual dependence ω ω ω q as observed in most of the D electronic systems. The plasmon energy gap is proportional to E F for E F ω is a decreasing function of background dielectric constant. The plasmon energy gap is reduced as compared to Weyl semimetals for the same set of parameters no plasmon mode occurs as E F. We obtain the analytical expression of real part of optical conductivity in the Q limit for both nonteracting interacting cases. Unlike Weyl semimetals, the interb optical absorption for TCF begins at ω = E F the optical transitions between valence conduction bs are forbidden in the long wavelength limit. The rate of increase in optical absorption with frequency is higher in TCFs than Weyl semimetals. On incorporating electron-electron interactions, the energy absorption gets reduced in both the systems plasmon peaks show up at the plasmon energy gaps.

Appendix A: Theory of linear density response The Hamiltonian operator of an electron gas in low energy continuum model of a lattice (excluding electronelectron interactions is given by Ĥ = k,λ E λk c λk c λk, (A where c λk c λk are creation annihilation operators of the single-particle states ψ λk λ(k k with energies E λk λ is the b index. The density operator ˆρ(r is given by ˆρ(r = ˆΨ (r ˆΨ(r. (A The field operators ˆΨ (r ˆΨ(r are generally expressed in terms of operators corresponding to momentum-spin basis { ψ s,k } (i.e. { s k }, which gives ˆρ(r = ( e iq r c sk V c skq. (A q k,s For a three-b system, the Hamiltonian is diagonal in { ψ λk } basis hence it is convenient to exp ˆρ(r in operators corresponding to this basis. The basis transformation equations are given by c sk = λ s λ(k c λk, c sk = λ s λ(k c λk, (A where λ is summed over (,,. Using Eqs.(A (A, we get ˆρ(r = ( e iq r λ (k λ (k q c λ V c k λ kq. q k,λ,λ (A5 When the system is in thermodynamic equilibrium with a reservoir at temperature T, the equilibrium electron density ρ(r given by ρ(r ˆρ(r = N ˆρ(re βĥ N, Z {N} (A6 where Z = {N} N e βĥ N is the canonical partition function, β = (k B T the summation runs over all the N-particle fermionic eigenstates of Ĥ.

(A8 The time evolution of the states are now governed by Ĥ (t, which drives the system out of equilibrium the electron density becomes a function of both space time in general. Considering magnitude of the perturbation very small compared to Ĥ, the nonequilibrium expectation value of density upto linear order in φ ext is given by the Kubo formula as 55 ˆρ(r = ˆρ(r dr dt χ(r, r, t, t φ ext (r, t t (A9 or, ρ ind (r, t = dr dt χ(r, r, t, t φ ext (r, t, (A t where ρ ind (r, t ˆρ(r ˆρ(r is the induced density χ(r, r, t t is the retarded density-density correlation function or polarizability given by χ(r, r, t, t = iθ(t t ˆρ I (r, t, ˆρ I (r, t ] /. (A Here,... denotes the expection value taken with respect to the equilibrium state ˆρ I (r, t is the density operator in the interaction picture, which is defined as ˆρ I (r, t = e iĥt/ ˆρ(re iĥt/. (A It can be seen that the polarizability is non-local in space retarded in time, i.e. the response at a particular point in space at a given instant of time is correlated to the value of external field at some other point in space at any previous instant of time. Moreover, ˆρ I (r, t, ˆρ I (r, t ] is always a function of (t t for translationally invariant systems, it is a function of r r. For such systems, χ(r, r, t, t χ(r r, t t hence ρ ind (r, t becomes the convolution of χ φ ext in both time space coordinates. By convolution theorem, we get where χ(q, ω = ρ ind (q, ω = χ(q, ωφ ext (q, ω, (A d(r r d(t t χ(r r, t t e iq (r r ω(t t ] (A φ ext (q, ω = dr dt φ ext (r, t e i(q r ωt (A5 are the Fourier transforms.

(A8 Here V (q = e /(ε r ε q is the Fourier transform of Coulomb potential energy between electrons in SI units in a medium of background dielectric constant ε r. The real space-time dielectric function ε(r, t is the inverse Fourier transform of Eq.(A8 acts as a response function between φ ext φ total : φ ext (r, t = dr dt ε(r r, t t φ total (r, t. t (A9 The poles of the interacting Lindhard function in Eq.(A7 or the zeroes of the dielectric function in Eq.(A8 correspond to the collective modes of electron oscillations are known as plasmon modes. They can be damped or undamped depending on the values of Q Ω of the external perturbation. The undamped plasmon modes Ω p are obtained from the zeroes of Re ε(q, ω] in the region where Im χ(q, ω] vanishes.
