Topological Quantum Materials

Prof. Binghai Yan
Department of Condensed Matter Physics

Topological quantum materials, for example, topological insulators (TIs) and Weyl semimetals (WSMs), have reshaped our understanding in physics and materials in last decades. The topology originates in the bulk and leads to usual surface states. I will overview basic concepts of topological states of matter and introduce latest progress including the nonlinear transport due to quantum geometry.
