The interplay between electron-electron interaction and topologyof Bloch electrons in topological materials recently has attracted considerableattentions from both experimental and theoretical aspects. (1) We find that theinverted band structure with the Mexican-hat dispersion could enhance theinterband correlation leading to a strong intrinsic plasmon excitation. Itsfrequency ranges from several meV to tens of meV and can be effectively tunedby the external fields. The electron-hole asymmetric term splits the peak ofthe plasmon excitation into double peaks. The fate and properties of thisplasmon excitation can also act as a probe to characterize the topologicalphases even in lightly doped systems. We numerically demonstrate the impact ofband inversion on plasmon excitations in magnetically doped thin films ofthree-dimensional strong topological insulators, which support the quantumanomalous Hall states (QAHE). (2) We study the chiral edge plasmons in QAHinsulators and find some new and remarkable features. We offer a quantitative explanationfor the recent observation of the chiral edge plasmon in QAH insulators. (3) Weinvestigate the impacts of symmetry breaking on the plasmons in monolayer 1T’ transition metal dichalcogenides and predict a new anisotropicacoustic plasmon. (4) Collaborated with experimental group, we find the novelplasmons due to the band inversion in three-dimensional type-II Weyl semimetalsand show the splitting of plasmon dispersion by inversion symmetry breaking.
