Quantized nonlinear Thouless pumping.
The topological protection of wave transport, originally observed in the context of the quantum Hall effect in two-dimensional electron gases1, has been shown to apply broadly to a range of physical
Topological gap solitons in a 1D non-Hermitian lattice
Nonlinear topological photonics is an emerging field aiming at extending the fascinating properties of topological states to the realm where interactions between the system con-stituents cannot be
Creation and mobility of discrete solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates
We analyze the generation and mobility of discrete solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates confined in an optical lattice under realistic experimental conditions. We discuss first the creation of

Topological pumping over a photonic Fibonacci quasicrystal
Quasiperiodic lattices have recently been shown to be a non-trivial topological phase of matter. Charge pumping -- one of the hallmarks of topological states of matter -- was recently realized for
Formation and propagation of matter-wave soliton trains
The formation of bright solitons of 7Li atoms in a quasi-one-dimensional optical trap is reported, by magnetically tuning the interactions in a stable Bose–Einstein condensate from repulsive to attractive.
Topological Thouless pumping of ultracold fermions
Charge transport in a cyclically time-modulated periodic potential, also known as a topological Thouless pump, has been realized in an ultracold gas of fermionic atoms. An electron gas in a

It is shown that the discreteness effects may be understood in the «standard» discrete NLS model as arising from an effective periodic potential similar to the Peierls-Nabarro (PN) barrier potential for kinks in the Frenkel-Kontorova model.
Measuring quantized circular dichroism in ultracold topological matter
The topology of two-dimensional materials traditionally manifests itself through the quantization of the Hall conductance, which is revealed in transport measurements1–3. Recently, it was predicted
Thouless pumping in disordered photonic systems
Bulk Thouless pumping is experimentally demonstrated using arrays of evanescently coupled optical waveguides, and it is shown that this approach realizes near-full-unit-cell transport per pump cycle for a physically relevant class of localized initial system excitations.
