Geometry- and topology effects in 3D architectures

Traditionally, the primary field where curvature has been at the heart of research was the theory of general relativity. In recent years, however, the impact of curvilinear geometry enters various disciplines ranging from solid-state physics to biology, giving rise to a plethora of emerging domains in curvilinear geometries such as plasmonics, cell biology, 2D van der Waals materials, magnetism, and superconductivity. At present, the exploration of complex-shaped nano-architectures is a rapidly developing research field with exciting novel physical phenomena stemming from the increased complexity in spin textures, frustration and magnetization dynamics, emerging because of geometry-, curvature-, and topology-induced effects.
