Emergent topology in photon fluids

Project description

Topological photonics research receives a boost

Materials that harbour topological states – exotic phases of matter – have fascinated condensed matter physicists over the last four decades. So far, the vast majority of topological states observed in solid-state, cold-atom or photons systems have been shown to arise from single particle dynamics. The experimental observation of new topological phases emerging from strongly interacting particles remains elusive. The goal of the EU-funded emergenTopo project is to demonstrate novel topological phases in photonic lattices emerging from interacting photons. To this end, researchers will employ different nonlinear photonics platforms and develop new ultrafast detection techniques to study topological excitations. The project aims to provide a better understanding of the emerging field of nonlinear photonic topological phases of matter.
