We report that the electrons around different valleys experience opposite direction refractions at the barrier interface when the energy dispersion is tilted along one of the transverse directions. Chirality dependent refractions at the barrier interface polarize the Weyl fermions in angle-space according to their valley index. A real magnetic barrier configuration is used to select allowed transmission angles, which results in electrically controllable and switchable valley polarization. Our findings may pave the way for experimental investigation of valley polarization, as well as valleytronic and electron optic applications in Weyl semimetals. © 2019, The Author(s).||Source Title:||Scientific Reports||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/209891||ISSN:||2045-2322||DOI:||10.1038/s41598-019-40947-2||Rights:||Attribution 4.0 International|
