The discovery of topological insulators and semimetals has opened up a new perspective to understand materials. Owing to the special band structure and enlarged Berry curvature, the linear responses are strongly enhanced in topological materials. The interplay of topological band structure and symmetries plays a crucial role for designing new materials with strong and exotic new electromagnetic responses and provides promising mechanisms and new materials for the next generation of technological applications. We review the fundamental concept of linear responses in topological materials from the symmetry point of view and discuss their potential applications. View Full-Text
