A topological approach to the next generation of electronic, photonic and phononic devices

(Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) The European project ‘Dissipationless topological channels for information transfer and quantum metrology’ (TOCHA) is launching a consortium of nine leading institutions from six European countries. TOCHA proposes radically new technologies taking advantage of the unique properties of topological matter that can prove crucial for information processing, quantum communication and metrology. It is funded with €5 million for the next five years and coordinated by the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2), at the UAB.
