Topological superconductors have attracted tremendous interest for hosting Majorana bound states on their boundaries, which are potential in realizing quantum computations. One promising approach to engineer topological superconductors is to discovery superconductors with nontrivial topology in their electronic band structure. In this talk, I will introduce our recent work on exploration of such materials. Specifically, I will first talk about our high-pressure measurement on the topological nodal-line semimetal SrAs3, which induces a Lifshitz transition below 1 GPa and then superconductivity at 20.6 GPa associated with a structural phase transition. The new cubic SrAs3 phase is found to host not only superconductivity but also a topological crystalline insulator state. I then will introduce our recent high magnetic field magnetotransport measurement on the layered superconductor TaSe3, which reveals the existence of a strong topological insulator state.
