The traditional bulk-boundary correspondence assuring robust gapless modes at the edges and surfaces of insulating and nodal topological materials gets masked in non-Hermitian (NH) systems by the skin effect, manifesting an accumulation of a macroscopic number of states near such interfaces. Here we show that dislocation lattice defects are immune to the skin effect and as such they support robust topological modes in the bulk of a NH system, specifically when the underlying Hermitian phase… Expand
