Topological phases and phenomena in photonics have attracted a lot of research interests since the pioneering work by Haldane. In this talk, I will first show our realization of the photonic analog of quantum anomalous Hall effect. At the edge, there exists topologically-protected one-way edge waveguides with Chern numbers of one, two, three and four. Then I will present our proposal of realizing Weyl points and line nodes in three-dimensional photonic crystals.
