(In fact, the above material have no quantum spin Hall effect since the spin is not conserved due to the spin-orbital interaction that makes the material non trivial, or the *Quantum spin Hall effect* defined in the paper is different from that defined in the Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_spin_Hall_effect )
