Is there an easy review about topological insulator?

  1. Nov 30, 2015 #1

    Is there a review paper about topological insulator which is written for non-physics major people?

    If it will be helpful, I know classical physics, basics about band theory and little bit of modern physics, and have just finished learning quantum mechanics (with a book written by Griffiths),
    but I am not that familiar with modern physics.
    If there is a review about topological insulator which is suitable to me, could you recommend?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Sure! There is a nice basic review article by some of the people who first came up with the idea of topological insulators. I read it back when I was in undergrad and when I had a similar background as you, and I remember liking it back then:


    In case you cannot access that with your internet, here is the free version: http://arxiv.org/abs/1002.3895
