A second-order topological insulator in an acoustical metamaterial with a breathing kagome lattice, supporting one-dimensional edge states and zero-dimensional corner states is demonstrated, and shape dependence allows corner states to act as topologically protected but reconfigurable local resonances.
Realization of an Acoustic Third-Order Topological Insulator.
By direct acoustic measurement, corner states at two corners of a rhombohedronlike structure, as predicted by the quantized Wannier centers are observed, which extends topological corner states from 2D to 3D, and may find applications in novel acoustic devices.
