Abstract

We propose the photonic topological Anderson insulator (FTAI), the first realization of the FTAI phase in any physical context (including condensed matter and cold atoms). In this phase, disorder counterintuitively induces a topological transition that breaks Anderson localization and leads to robust transport.
