Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Crystals with non-trivial topologies in their electronic wavefunctions are termed as topological matters. This decade has seen the flurry of the discovery of various categories of topological matters. For example, Bi2Se3-class, SnTe-class and TaAs-class of materials have been established as topological insulators, topological crystalline insulators and topological Weyl semimetals. Topological superconductors were also uncovered in several artificial heterostructures. In the meantime, many novel physics properties of these topological matters, i.e. the existences of Weyl and Majorana quasiparticles, the realizations of quantum spin Hall and quantum anomalous Hall effects, have been experimental detected. The results from the topological matter are of importance in the respects of both fundamental and applicational research.

We feel it is essential to have a chance to summarize the recent progress, which should include the topics on the theoretical prediction and experimental verification of materials with different topologies, the growth of distinct topological matters, their transport, optical, spectroscopic properties, the device applications and so on.

Applied Science will launch the Special Issue “Emergent phenomena of topological matters”. This Special Issue aims to cover recent developments in discovery of various types of topological matters, as well as relevant emergent phenomena.

The discovery of topological insulators and semimetals has opened up a new perspective to understand materials. Owing to the special band structure and enlarged Berry curvature, the linear responses are strongly enhanced in topological materials. The interplay of topological band structure and symmetries plays a crucial role for designing new materials with strong and exotic new electromagnetic responses and provides promising mechanisms and new materials for the next generation of technological applications. We review the fundamental concept of linear responses in topological materials from the symmetry point of view and discuss their potential applications. Full article
