At the invitation of the School of Physics and Technology and Cuiying College, Professor Liu Zhengyou from Wuhan University came to our school for exchanges and gave academic reports. Teachers and students are welcome to attend!
Report title: Topological States in Phononic Crystals
Location: Room 1201 in Ligong Building
Topological state of matter is the current research hotspot in the field of condensed matter and material physics. Phononic crystals are artificial materials with periodic structures, in which phonon states or acoustic wave states can also have topological properties. This report will introduce several topological states in phononic crystals, including valley states, Dirac semi-metals, Weyl semi-metals, Nodal line/surface semi-metals and topological insulators, etc., as well as the boundary states and topological characteristics of various topological phases.
