Project no. 964931, EU-Horizon2020, FET-OPEN
Topological solitons in antiferroelectrics (TSAR)
J. Hlinka, (2021-2024)

On the trail of novel spintronic and electronic devices via exotic light-matter interactions

Topological states are exotic phases of matter resistant to change. They give rise to phenomena such as crystals that insulate on the inside but conduct electricity on their surfaces (topological insulators) or chiral arrangements of some order parameters in real space. It is also possible to isolate individual topological entities and use them for specific tasks, especially for information technology purposes. The EU-funded TSAR project will investigate topological phenomena in 'unconventional' topological materials where the staggered orders (electric and magnetic) result in a macroscopic cancellation of their built-in fields. This will open new horizons in the manipulation of individual topological solitons at very fast speed.
