It is this discovery that has led to the blossoming use of topology in physics. The first discussion of topological phases and their transitions can be traced back to the work by Thouless, Haldane, and Kosterlitz. The idea of using topology to classify states of matter has already been widely applied to electronics, superconductors, photonics, mechanics, and more. Now, we are in the dawn of the topological matter revolution, to discovery more topological phases, to better understand nature, and to revolutionize the future of technologies.
