Higher order topological insulators have emerged as a new class of phases, whose robust in-gap "corner" modes arise from the bulk higher-order multipoles beyond the dipoles in conventional topological insulators. Despite rapid theoretical and experimental breakthroughs, all discussions have been constrained to the static scenario due to the lack of specific schemes to compute higher-order dynamical topological invariant. Here we provide a concrete model and explicit constructions of topological…

Hinge solitons in three-dimensional second-order topological insulators

Higher-order topological insulators have recently witnessed rapid progress in various fields ranging from condensed matter physics to electric circuits. A well-known higher-order state is the

Simulating Floquet topological phases in static systems

We show that scattering from the boundary of static, higher-order topological insulators (HOTIs) can be used to simulate the behavior of (time-periodic) Floquet topological insulators. We consider

Floquet higher-order topological insulators and superconductors with space-time symmetries

Floquet higher-order topological insulators and superconductors (HOTI/SCs) with an order-two space-time symmetry or antisymmetry are classified. This is achieved by considering unitary loops, whose

Floquet and anomalous Floquet Weyl semimetals

The periodic driving of a quantum system can enable new topological phases without analogs in static systems. This provides a route towards preparing non-equilibrium quantum phases rooted into the

Higher-Order Topological Odd-Parity Superconductors.

It is revealed that the contractibility of Fermi surfaces without crossing any time-reversal invariant momentum and the presence of nontrivial Berry phase on Fermani surfaces are two key conditions for the realization of higher-order topological odd-parity superconductors.

The Halon: A Quasiparticle Featuring Critical Charge Fractionalization

What can we learn about a many-body system when we measure every constituent particle? Current experiments with ultracold atoms provide snapshots of many-body states with single particle resolution.



In fact, there are infinitely many choices to back up the angles. We demonstrate one such choice in
