Robust Photonics with High-Order Topological Protection
Disorder that originates from inhomogeneities and manufacturing defects sets the limits of performance of nearly all photonic devices. Topological protection provides immunity to certain classes of disorder. Our team is exploring the frontiers of high-order topological photonics, in which topological protection is generated at extended dimensionalities relative to the bulk material.
