Electron wave function in solids can change electron's trajectory in a non-trivial way. The chief example is the Berry curvature that leads to anomalous electron velocity. In this talk, we will explore several phenomena of such effects in optoelectronics and transport. Firstly, spatial gap inversion induces topological boundary states in bilayer graphene. We investigate the collective motion (plasmons) of the topological states [1]. Next, we show non-trivial optical responses of anomalous Hall materials such as cyclotron motion without magnetic field and dynamical Hall currents without breaking time reversal symmetry [2,3]. Finally, I will talk about the effect of wave functions in electron hydrodynamics [4,5].
