How do you measure the topological spin of an anyon? So how could an experimental setup look like? Is topological spin an observable at all?
I have been reading some reviews and looked into books on anyons and topological quantum computation and I found it a little difficult to make out a short list of parameters and a clear and short list ...
Topological insulators (TI) have already been made in lab. Topological superconductors (TSC), being close cousins of TI, seem harder to make. Why is that? It seems that materials in connection with ...
Effective field theory of 3d topological insulators (TI) predict some novel electromagnetic effects. Unfortunately it require a gapped surface which is hard to achieve experimentally. Then I have two ...
I would like to know of good pedagogic references to learn about the notion of "defects" in TFTs and CFTs. I am specially interested in 3+1 TFTs (.and probably about their relation to 2+1 CFTs..) In ...
