Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors

  • 01:08:29


In this talk, I will first give a brief overview on topological insulators and superconductors. I will then discuss the recent theoretical prediction and the experimental observation of the quantum anomalous Hall effect in magnetic topological insulators. I shall present a newly predicted material called stanene, and discuss its potential applications. Finally, I shall discuss how the subject could impact our understanding of fundamental laws of physics.
