Topological order beyond the equilibrium ground state: driven quantum matter and magnon excitation spectra

Project description

On the trail of a modern periodic table of topological 'elements'

Topological materials exhibit exotic physical phenomena that could find important application in quantum devices and quantum information technology. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for theoretical discoveries related to topological phases of matter, among the most important achievements in condensed matter physics. Much as Mendeleev's periodic table predicted the existence of other elements and their properties based on underlying "rules," scientists are developing a modern Mendeleev's table of topological materials. The EU-funded ExcitingTopology project plans to uncover the underlying integrative classification concepts that will guide us in engineering novel states of topological matter, ushering in a new era of quantum applications.
