Topological braiding of non-Abelian mid-gap defects in classical meta-materials

19 Mar 2020 Barlas Yafis Prodan Emil

Non-trivial braid-group representations appear as non-Abelian quantum statistics of emergent Majorana zero modes in one and two-dimensional topological superconductors. Here, we generate such representations with topologically protected domain-wall modes in a classical analogue of the Kitaev superconducting chain, with a particle-hole like symmetry and a Z2 topological invariant...
