Nobel Prize in Physics 2016 - Topological Phases of Matter

Prof. Peter Prelovšek

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana & J. Stefan Institute, Ljubljana


The Nobel Prize in Physics 2016 was awarded to David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter. In the talk I will describe their major achievements, on which the award is based, but also briefly recent developments within very active field of topological quantum matter.
