Researchers find path to discovering new topological materials, holding promise for technological applications

Thursday, Aug 3, 2017

Researchers have discovered how to identify new examples of topological materials, which have unique and desirable electronic properties. The technique involves finding the connection between band theory, which describes the energy levels of electrons in a solid, with a material’s topological nature. The disconnected bands indicate the material is a topological insulator. (The research team includes Professor Andrei Bernevig, PCCM IRG-1 senior investigator,.)
