In this work, we studied time-reversal-breaking topological phases as a result of the interplay between anti-ferromagnetism and inverted band structures in anti-ferromagnetic double perovskite transition metal Sr2FeOsO6 films. By combining the first principles calculations and analytical models, we demonstrate that the quantum anomalous Hall phase and chiral topological superconducting phase can be realized in this system. We find that to achieve time-reversal-breaking topological phases in anti-ferromagnetic materials, it is essential to break the combined symmetry of time reversal and inversion, which generally exists in anti-ferromagnetic structures. As a result, we can utilize an external electric gate voltage to induce the phase transition between topological phases and trivial phases, thus providing an electrically controllable topological platform for the future transport experiments.
