  1. Berry phase & Berry connection in condensed-matter systems;

  2. Paradigm: Aharonov-Bohm phase and its surprising measurement in condensed-
    matter interferometers;

  3. Spin-orbit coupling, topological insulators;

  4. Aharonov-Casher phase;

  5. (Futile) attempts to measure the aharonov-Casher phase in condensed-matter interferometers;

  6. Suggestion: interference effect in interferometers with broken time-reversal sym- metry;
