Synthetic dimensions enable a new way to construct higher-order topological insulators
Higher-order topological insulators (HOTIs) are a new phase of matter predicted in 2017, involving complicated high-dimensional structures which show signature physical effects called ''corner modes.'' Now, scientists have proposed a recipe to construct such HOTIs and observe corner modes for photons in simpler, lower-dimensional structures by harnessing an emerging concept called ''synthetic dimensions.'' This construction allows flexible tuning of the topological behavior and opens avenues for even more exotic phases of photons in very high dimensions. (2020-07-21)

#576 Science Communication in Creative Places
When you think of science communication, you might think of TED talks or museum talks or video talks, or... people giving lectures. It's a lot of people talking. But there's more to sci comm than that. This week host Bethany Brookshire talks to three people who have looked at science communication in places you might not expect it. We'll speak with Mauna Dasari, a graduate student at Notre Dame, about making mammals into a March Madness match. We'll talk with Sarah Garner, director of the Pathologists Assistant Program at Tulane University School of Medicine, who takes pathology instruction out of...

What If?
There's plenty of speculation about what Donald Trump might do in the wake of the election. Would he dispute the results if he loses? Would he simply refuse to leave office, or even try to use the military to maintain control? Last summer, Rosa Brooks got together a team of experts and political operatives from both sides of the aisle to ask a slightly different question. Rather than arguing about whether he'd do those things, they dug into what exactly would happen if he did. Part war game part choose your own adventure, Rosa's Transition Integrity Project doesn't give us any predictions, and it isn't a referendum on Trump. Instead, it's a deeply illuminating stress test on our laws, our institutions, and on the commitment to democracy written into the constitution. This episode was reported by Bethel Habte, with help from Tracie Hunte, and produced by Bethel Habte. Jeremy Bloom provided original music.
