Khovanov homology is a combinatorially-defined knot invariant which refines the Jones polynomial. After recalling the definition of Khovanov homology we will sketch a construction of a stable homotopy refinement of Khovanov homology. We will conclude with some modest applications and some work in progress. This is joint work with Tyler Lawson and Sucharit Sarkar. Another construction of the Khovanov stable homotopy type was given by Hu-Kriz-Kriz.
