Paper Abstract

In this paper, we review our recent research efforts on “open” topological photonic structures in the presence of radiation loss or material loss/gain. We focus on three main topics: (a) The topological nature of embedded eigenstates, or bound states in the continuum, in suitably engineered dielectric metasurfaces; (b) Open topological wave-guiding structures with radiation loss, which support topologically-protected one-way leaky modes that may act as a bridge between freespace radiation and unidirectional guided waves; (c) Non-Hermitian topological waveguides with gain and loss, which exhibit exceptional points of degeneracy accompanied by anomalous topologically-protected propagation properties.
