Floquet Topological Insulators

The topic of floquet topological insulators is an important example which illustrates that the existence of nontrivial band topology is not limited to material properties. It turns out that light-matter interaction can be exploited to “engineer” topological insulators within topologically trivial materials. The above paper is the first review article on this topic.
