The research topics of this TG include three of the fast growing research fields which are being tackled by many physicists, chemists, materials and life scientists worldwide. The track records of our core members and young participants have consistently shown their capabilities of publishing high-quality and high-impact research papers. The core members in this TG are not only the locally but also internationally recognized pioneers in the field of topological materials. We will continue to pursue and maintain the leadership in this research field. Meanwhile, our core members also actively serve local academic and research communities to promote the local researches based on first-principles calculations. Our core members will continuously increase Taiwan’s international visibility by publishing frontier research papers. We expect that some high quality publications will be delivered every year and the research work will be jointly published by the core members, domestic, and international collaborators.
