In the anti-$\\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric SSH model, the gain and loss are alternatively arranged in pairs under the inversion symmetry.

Furthermore, the introduction of non-Hermiticity to topological systems offers a new degree of freedom to control wave propagation, such as concurrent existence of exceptional point and topological edge states, novel non-Hermiticity-induced topological . Exceptional points (EPs) are spectral degeneracies that emerge in open dynamical systems. The wavefunction and spectral topol ogy we re initially regarded The generalization of inversion symmetry is unique to non-Hermitian systems. Quasi-edge states arise rather generally in systems displaying the non-Hermitian skin effect and can be predicted from the non-trivial topology of the energy spectrum under periodic boundary conditions via a bulk-edge correspondence. In this study, we give methods to theoretically detect skin effects and exceptional points by generalizing inversion symmetry. The study of Non-Hermitian systems have gained an immense attention and importance in the recent times when it entered the area of topological systems 6,14,15,16 but the criticality in non . although the conventional notion of topological materials is based on hermitian hamiltonians, effective hamiltonians can become non-hermitian in nonconservative systems including both quantum and. Among the exotic phenomena observed in non-Hermitian materials, bulk Fermi arcs [7] hold a special place. Together with the fact that an ideal Hermitian system is usually difficult to realize in real life, the non-Hermitian physics has become a vibrant field in the past few years [17-24]. In particular, how the paramount and genuinely NH concept of exceptional degeneracies, at which both eigenvalues and eigenvectors coalesce, leads to phenomena drastically distinct from the familiar Hermitian realm is discussed. Based on the concrete form of the Berry connection, we demonstrate that the exceptional line (EL), at which the eigenstates coalesce, can act as a vortex filament.

The current understanding of the role of topology in non-Hermitian (NH) systems and its far-reaching physical consequences observable in a range of dissipative settings are reviewed. At this early stage of the field, several principles have been uncovered: (i) non-Hermitian systems have stable band degeneracies in two dimensions (2D), called exceptional points 15,16,17 (Fig. The appearance of the degenerate . Namely, under a change of a system parameter, the GBZ is deformed so that It offers a powerful tool in the characterization of both the intrinsic degrees of freedom (DOFs) of a system and the interactions with the external environment. Non-Hermitian physics, an active topic in photonics, is also being increasingly extended to investigate the band topologies of condensed-matter systems. Kunst, Flore K. Abstract. . SPIE . Exciting developments include tunable wave guides that are robust to disorder (1-3), structure-free systems (4, 5), and topological lasers and pumping (6-10).In these systems, active components are introduced to typically 1) break time-reversal symmetry to create topological .

We systematically study the topology of the exceptional point (EP) in the finite non-Hermitian system. [] For dissipative systems, the associated eigenspectra are functions of the dissipation rates and an EP occurs at a critical dissipation rate c $\Gamma _c$ around which the real and imaginary part of two or more eigenvalues coalesce and bifurcate, respectively. Abstract. These phases are characterized by composite cyclic loops of multiple complex-energy bands encircling single or multiple exceptional points (EPs) on the . correspondence in the non-Hermitian version [48], and non-Hermitian skin effect [49]. We propose an anti-parity-time (anti-$\\mathcal{PT}$) symmetric non-Hermitian Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) model, where the large non-Hermiticity constructively creates nontrivial topology and greatly expands the topological phase. In this paper, we provide a topological classification of isolated EPs based on homotopy theory. Here, the authors report a 2D non-Hermitian . These systems, usually with loss and gain, are frequently mod-eled by non-Hermitian Hamiltonians.

In this chapter, we review topological phases in Hermitian systems and explain non-Hermitian systems. These boundary modes, also called skin modes, look quite similar to the boundary states in a topologically non-trivial insulator. 1, which consists of one pair of identical fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) operating around 1550 n m with a bandwidth of 7 n m. E r 3 + - and C e 3 +-doped phosphosilicate sol-gel can be coated on the facets of each FBG to serve as active and lossy materials, respectively.

The non-Hermitian framework consists of mathematical structures that are fundamentally different from those of Hermitian theories. However, a comprehensive theory of non-Hermitian topology for this system has not yet been developed. In this paper, we provide a topological classification of isolated EPs based on homotopy theory. The topology of non-Hermitian systems is drastically shaped by the non-Hermitian skin effect, which leads to the generalized bulk-boundary correspondence and non-Bloch band theory. First, we show that various topological phases stem from a geometric phase. I will show that in small-gap systems, the decay of a quasiparticle can alter its energy-momentum dispersion significantly, for example, transform a two-dimensional Dirac point into a nodal arc that ends at topological exceptional points.

Quasiparticles in many-body systems generally have a finite lifetime due to electron-electron, electron-phonon and electron-impurity scatterings. The topology of exceptional points is reflected by the phase rigidity scaling exponents. The multipartite non-Hermitian Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model is explored as a prototypical example of one-dimensional systems with several sublattice sites for unveiling intriguing insulating and metallic phases with no Hermitian counterparts. This system is unique because we can create the topological insulating phase from a homogeneous resonator chain only by manipulating gain and loss with a certain order, leading to reconfigurable optical non-trivial topology.
