Editor's Choice: topological matter

Topological matter is an exciting area of research, with many applications ranging from photonics to quantum computing. The robustness that topological states exhibit to deformities in a material makes these states of matter highly desirable. In 2016, the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to David Thouless, Duncan Haldane and Michael Kosterlitz for their work on topological states of matter. Here, we present a selection of Scientific Reports papers that demonstrate the versatility of topological matter.
