This work describes a class of topological phonon modes, that is, mechanical vibrations localized at the edges of special structures that are robust against the deformations of the structures. A class of topological phonons was recently found in two-dimensional structures similar to that of microtubules. The present work introduces another class of topological phonons, this time occurring in quasi-one-dimensional filamentary structures with inversion symmetry. The phenomenon is exemplified… CONTINUE READING
