Photonic Topological Insulators

Mordechai (Moti) Segev

Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel

Photonic systems are naturally an excellent avenue to study fundamental concepts of waves' interactions, and many times lead to new discoveries. In this context, the recent breakthroughs on photonic topological insulators will be discussed, with an emphasis on fundamental aspects that are universal to many waves systems in nature.
