    Since the notion of topological insulator (TI) was envisioned about a decade ago, topology has become a new paradigm in condensed matter physics. Realization of topology as a generic property of materials has led to numerous predictions of unprecedented phenomena such as magnetic dipoles, axion electrodynamics, resistance-free conduction etc. However, only a very small subset of these predictions have been materialized in real materials, especially in the quantum regime.
