One-Dimensional Topological Insulators

M. Rizwan, T. Hashmi, A. Ayub

One-dimensional topological insulators have garnered quite a lot of attention in recent times. These topological insulators (TIs) are crucial in the comprehension of topological properties. This chapter provides a very detailed and comprehensive overview of these astonishing materials. From history, classification based on symmetry, Dirac points, and dimensions, generations such as 1st, 2nd, and higher order TIs, synthesis techniques such as physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition, 2D, 3D Tis and future models of these topological insulators, all are deliberated in detail. Future aspects are discussed as well, this chapter is composed to fully enlighten the reader on these 1D topological insulators.
