Topological Active Fluids

Unidirectional wave propagation

We explore how topological active metamaterials can exhibit chiral states that function as unidirectional waveguides for sound.

Topological robustness comes from a basic property of active liquids that compose the metamaterial: these liquids inherently break time-reversal symmetry.
