An Overview of Topological Insulators: Design, Types and Future Prospects

Anushka Banerjee

Abstract

Topological insulators (TIs) are one of the most promising prospects that are anticipated to herald in a new age in the field of electronic devices. They were experimentally found only a few years ago. These can be defined as electronic materials that behave like conductors along their surface but are insulating in the bulk. This paper provides an introductory perspective on TIs. A summary on the origin of TIs, their different types, designs, properties, challenges, and prospects are discussed. This paper also sheds light on a rich variety of theoretically predicted materials that could function as TIs.
