- A three-dimensional (3D) Dirac semimetal (DS) is an analogue of graphene, but with linear energy dispersion in all (three) momentum directions. 3D DSs have been a fertile playground in discovering novel quantum particles, for example Weyl fermions, in solid state systems. Many 3D DSs were theoretically predicted and experimentally confirmed. Here, we report here the results in exfoliated ZrTe5 thin flakes from the studies of aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy and low temperature magneto-transport measurements. We observed several unique results. First, a π Berry phase was obtained from the Landau fan diagram of the Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in the longitudinal conductivity σxx. Second, the longitudinal resistivity ρxx shows a linear magnetic field dependence in the quantum limit regime. Most surprisingly, quantum oscillations were also observed at fractional Landau level indices N = 5/3 and 7/5, demonstrating strong electron-electron interaction effects in ZrTe5.
