    Topolectrical circuits: A new direction of topological research is ready for take off

    Through a recently developed experimental platform, topological matter can be realized in a fast, cost efficient, and versatile way. It was only about two years ago that researchers of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat realized "Topolectric Circuits" and did important pioneering work on their conceptualization for synthetic topological matter. Another breakthrough has now been achieved by the team led by Würzburg physicist Prof. Dr. Ronny Thomale.

    It's all about the surface

    The extraordinary material manganese bismuth telluride is the first topological insulator to exhibit a number of spectacular physical effects due to its internal magnetic field. Now, researchers of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat found out which atomic layer has to be on the surface for this to happen. This makes it possible to better control the properties of this quantum material and brings it a little closer to everyday use. For the future, this promises a more energy-efficient technology.

    Light and matter. Photonics scientist to occupy the cluster's first junior professorship

    Since a Nature article in 2018, experts have been looking forward to photonic quantum physics from Würzburg. Sebastian Klembt played a key role in the presentation of the first topological isolator made of light and matter. The scientist has been the first junior professor in the Cluster of Excellence since November 2020.
