The application of a strong electromagnetic drive has emerged as a powerful new route to manipulate materials properties. Remarkably, it has been predicted that sought-after quantum phases, for example with topological properties, can be created by periodic driving. However, realistic calculations including the non-trivial heating dynamics and material specific couplings are missing. The central goal of this project will be to theoretically investigate how novel dynamical phases of quantum magnets can be realized by realistic driving protocols and how to probe the emergent properties of sought-after topological magnetic phases.
