Title: The Search for Topological Materials
We introduce the field of topological insulators, aiming to answer the questions, “What is a topological insulator?” “What is it good for?” And finally, “Why do we not know of more topological materials?” We then outline our approach to finding more topological materials through the theory of Topological Quantum Chemistry. We give a status update on materials found using this method and an outlook of the field.
