Physics - IQUIST Seminar

Abstract: After an elementary introduction to some unique properties of topological phases of matter, I will discuss the possibility of realizing bound topological qubits on semiclassical defects in topological phases coexisting with a conventional ordered phase. These defects take the form of vortices, dislocations, or disclinations, and there is a rich interplay between topology and symmetry which will be outlined.
