Exploring and realizing topological quantum matter has become one of the most intriguing fields in quantum many-body physics. In this lecture, I will show how we can realize and probe topological quantum matter using the novel toolbox of ultracold atomic systems, achieving effective artificial magnetic fields than can become 100x stronger than any laboratory fields. I will also discuss how dynamical versions of the Integer Quantum Hall effect can be realised through the celebrated Thouless Charge pump and discuss prospects for realizing Fractional Chern Insulators. Using Quantum Gas Microscopy, I will show how non-local hidden order parameters can be detected, allowing us to reveal topological order in many-body systems at the most fundamental level for the first time.
