The Center for the Advancement of Topological Semimetals (CATS) will advance our understanding and accelerate breakthrough innovations in topological semimetals. CATS will pursue integrated 4-year, high-level fundamental research goals to:
1. Predict, discover, and understand archetypal magnetic topological semimetals (TSMs) and heretofore-unknown magnetic topological states of matter;
2. Controllably induce topological phase transitions; and
3. Manipulate the response of topological states to external fields.
