DESCRIPTION:Honeycomb lattice has played an important role in the course of
fostering topology physics as known from the Haldane model and the Kane-Me
le model [1]. Recently\, we proposed a new way to derive nontrivial topolog
y based on honeycomb structure with time-reversal symmetry. The first examp
le is to achieve a topological photonic crystal made of dielectric material
s such as silicon [2]. We identify a pseudospin degree of freedom in electr
omagnetic (EM) modes associated with C6v crystalline symmetry\, and show th
at nontrivial topology is induced by photonic p-d band inversion. Recent mi
crowave experiments confirm our theory [3\,4]. The idea can be extended to
phononic systems\, physical waves\, and electronic systems. We investigate
graphene with detuned nearest-neighbor hopping energy or nano-hole arrays\,
and find topological edge/interface states protected by energy gap over 1e
V [5\,6\,7]. Recent progresses and perspectives of the present approach wil
l be discussed.\n\nReferences:\n[1] H.-M. Weng\, R. Yu\, X. Hu\, X. Dai and
