TOCHA will take a topological approach to the next generation of electronic, photonic and phononic devices

The European Project “Dissipationless topological channels for information transfer and quantum metrology” (TOCHA) has launched a consortium of 9 leading institutions from 6 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 Euros for the next five years and is coordinated by the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2).
