Topology Gets Magnetic: The New Wave Of Topological Magnetic Materials

October 28, 2020

The electronic structure of nonmagnetic crystals can be classified by complete theories of band topology, reminiscent of a “topological periodic table.” However, such a classification for magnetic materials has so far been elusive, and hence very few ...
