We study the topological optical states in one-dimensional (1D) dimerized ultracold atomic chains, as an extension of the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model. By taking the fully retarded near-field and far-field dipole-dipole interactions into account, we describe the system by an effective non-Hermitian Hamiltonian, vastly different from the Hermitian Hamiltonian of the conventional SSH model. We analytically calculate the complex bandstructures for infinitely long chains, and show that the… 

Topological quantum optical states in quasiperiodic cold atomic chains

Topological quantum optical states in one-dimensional (1D) quasiperiodic cold atomic chains are studied in this work. We propose that by introducing incommensurate modulations on the interatomic

Topological phonon polaritons in one-dimensional non-Hermitian silicon carbide nanoparticle chains

Topological phonon polaritons (TPhPs) are highly protected and localized edge modes that are capable of achieving a strong confinement of electromagnetic waves and immune to impurities and disorder.

Topological and nontopological photonic states in two coupled circuit quantum electrodynamics chains

We investigate the topological and nontopological photonic states induced by the interchain coupling strength in a one-dimensional coupled circuit quantum electrodynamics chains system. In the case

Wideband tunable infrared topological plasmon polaritons in dimerized chains of doped-silicon nanoparticles

We investigate the topological plasmon polaritons (TPPs) in one-dimensional dimerized doped silicon nanoparticle chains, as an analogy of the topological edge states in the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH)

Bulk-edge correspondence and long-range hopping in the topological plasmonic chain

Abstract The existence of topologically protected edge modes is often cited as a highly desirable trait of topological insulators. However, these edge states are not always present. A realistic

Topological and Nontopological Edge States Induced by Qubit‐Assisted Coupling Potentials

In the usual Su–Schrieffer–Heeger (SSH) chain, the topology of the energy spectrum is divided into two categories in different parameter regions. Here, the topological and nontopological edge states

PT symmetry of the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model with imaginary boundary potentials and next-nearest-neighboring coupling

It can be concluded that the NNN coupling takes important effects to the change of the topological properties of the non-Hermitian SSH system.

Partial topological Zak phase and dynamical confinement in a non-Hermitian bipartite system

Unlike a Chern number in $2$D and $3$D topological system, Zak phase takes a subtle role to characterize the topological phase in $1$D. On the one hand, it is not a gauge invariant, on the other

Helical resonant transport and purified amplification at an exceptional point

We propose an application of a parity-time symmetric non-Hermitian Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model by embedded it in a two-dimensional square lattice tube. The coalescence state at the exceptional



Observation of the topological soliton state in the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model

The Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model, which captures the most striking transport properties of the conductive organic polymer trans-polyacetylene, provides perhaps the most basic model system supporting topological excitations, and quantum simulation of this model and observation of the localized topological soliton state are reported on.

Edge states and topological phases in non-Hermitian systems

Topological stability of the edge states is investigated for non-Hermitian systems. We examine two classes of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians supporting real bulk eigenenergies in weak non-Hermiticity:

Topological phases and edge states in a non-Hermitian trimerized optical lattice

Topologically engineered optical materials support robust light transport. Herein, the investigated non-Hermitian lattice is trimerized and inhomogeneously coupled using uniform intracell coupling.

Topological Plasmonic Chain with Retardation and Radiative Effects

We study a one-dimensional plasmonic system with nontrivial topology: a chain of metallic nanoparticles with alternating spacing, which in the limit of small particles is the plasmonic analogue to

Topologically protected bound states in photonic parity-time-symmetric crystals.

This work shows theoretically and experimentally the existence of states that are localized at the interface between two topologically distinct PT-symmetric photonic lattices, and finds analytical closed form solutions of topological PT-Symmetric interface states.

Topological phases in the non-Hermitian Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model

We address the conditions required for a $\mathbb{Z}$ topological classification in the most general form of the non-Hermitian Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model. Any chirally symmetric SSH model will

Direct measurement of the Zak phase in topological Bloch bands

Geometric phases that characterize the topological properties of Bloch bands play a fundamental role in the band theory of solids. Here we report on the measurement of the geometric phase acquired by

Anomalous Edge State in a Non-Hermitian Lattice.

We show that the bulk-boundary correspondence for topological insulators can be modified in the presence of non-Hermiticity. We consider a one-dimensional tight-binding model with gain and loss as

Topological collective plasmons in bipartite chains of metallic nanoparticles

We study a bipartite linear chain constituted by spherical metallic nanoparticles, where each nanoparticle supports a localized surface plasmon. The near-field dipolar interaction between the

Lasing in topological edge states of a one-dimensional lattice

Topology describes properties that remain unaffected by smooth distortions. Its main hallmark is the emergence of edge states localized at the boundary between regions characterized by distinct
