Interaction-induced transition in the quantum chaotic dynamics of a disordered metal.

Ann Phys (N Y) 2019 ;405

Joint Quantum Institute, NIST/University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742, USA.

We demonstrate that a weakly disordered metal with short-range interactions exhibits a transition in the quantum chaotic dynamics when changing the temperature or the interaction strength. For weak interactions, the system displays exponential growth of the out-of-time-ordered correlator (OTOC) of the current operator. The Lyapunov exponent of this growth is temperature-independent in the limit of vanishing interaction. Read More

Two-dimensional lattice gauge theories with superconducting quantum circuits.

Ann Phys (N Y) 2014 Dec;351:634-654

Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria ; Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Innsbruck, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

A quantum simulator of [Formula: see text] lattice gauge theories can be implemented with superconducting circuits. This allows the investigation of confined and deconfined phases in quantum link models, and of valence bond solid and spin liquid phases in quantum dimer models. Fractionalized confining strings and the real-time dynamics of quantum phase transitions are accessible as well. Read More

Physical scales in the Wigner-Boltzmann equation.

Ann Phys (N Y) 2013 Jan;328(C):220-237

Institute for Microelectronics, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria.

The Wigner-Boltzmann equation provides the Wigner single particle theory with interactions with bosonic degrees of freedom associated with harmonic oscillators, such as phonons in solids. Quantum evolution is an interplay of two transport modes, corresponding to the common coherent particle-potential processes, or to the decoherence causing scattering due to the oscillators. Which evolution mode will dominate depends on the scales of the involved physical quantities. Read More
