Quenches to the critical point of the three-state Potts model: Matrix product state simulations and conformal field theory

2022-09-19T15:57:15+02:00Tags: , , , |

Authors: Robertson, Niall F.; Surace, Jacopo; Tagliacozzo, Luca Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW B Publication date: 2022/05/04 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.105.195103 Abstract: Conformal field theories (CFTs) have been used extensively to understand the physics of critical lattice models at equilibrium. However, the applicability of CFT calculations to the behavior of the lattice systems in the out-of-equilibrium setting is not [...]

Scalable estimation of pure multi-qubit states

Authors: Pereira, Luciano; Zambrano, Leonardo; Delgado, Aldo Journal: NPJ QUANTUM INFORMATION Publication date: 2022/05/13 DOI: 10.1038/s41534-022-00565-9 Abstract: We introduce an inductive n-qubit pure-state estimation method based on projective measurements on mn + 1 separable bases or m entangled bases plus the computational basis, with m >= 2. The method exhibits a favorable scaling in the [...]

Spin Many-Body Phases in Standard- and Topological-Waveguide QED Simulators

2022-09-19T15:57:06+02:00Tags: , , |

Authors: Bello, M.; Platero, G.; Gonzalez-Tudela, A. Journal: PRX QUANTUM Publication date: 2022/03/07 DOI: 10.1103/PRXQuantum.3.010336 Abstract: Waveguide QED has emerged as a powerful analog quantum simulator due to the possibility of mediating versatile spin-spin interactions with tunable sign, range, and even dimerization. Yet, despite their potential, the many-body phases emerging from these systems have only [...]

Gigahertz Frame Rate Imaging of Charge-Injection Dynamics in a Molecular Light Source

Authors: Roslawska, Anna; Merino, Pablo; Leon, Christopher C.; Grewal, Abhishek; Etzkorn, Markus; Kuhnke, Klaus; Kern, Klaus Journal: NANO LETTERS Publication date: 2021/06/09 DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.1c00328 Abstract: Light sources on the scale of single molecules can be addressed and characterized at their proper sub-nanometer scale by scanning tunneling microscopy-induced luminescence (STML). Such a source can be driven [...]

Atomic-Scale Structural Fluctuations of a Plasmonic Cavity

Authors: Roslawska, Anna; Merino, Pablo; Grewal, Abhishek; Leon, Christopher C.; Kuhnke, Klaus; Kern, Klaus Journal: NANO LETTERS Publication date: 2021/09/08 DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.1c02207 Abstract: Optical spectromicroscopies, which can reach atomic resolution due to plasmonic enhancement, are perturbed by spontaneous intensity modifications. Here, we study such fluctuations in plasmonic electroluminescence at the single-atom limit profiting from the [...]

Photon-Mediated Interactions near a Dirac Photonic Crystal Slab

Authors: Petrovish Navarro-Baron, Erik; Vinck-Posada, Herbert; Gonzalez-Tudela, Alejandro Journal: ACS PHOTONICS Publication date: 2021/11/17 DOI: 10.1021/acsphotonics.1c00991 Abstract: Dirac energy dispersions are responsible for the extraordinary transport properties of graphene. This motivated the quest for engineering such energy dispersions also in photonics, where they have been predicted to lead to many exciting phenomena. One paradigmatic example [...]

The Electron-Phonon Interaction of Low-Dimensional and Multi-Dimensional Materials from He Atom Scattering

2021-02-12T10:08:07+01:00Tags: , , , , , |

Authors: Benedek, Giorgio; Manson, Joseph R.; Miret-Artes, Salvador Contribution: Article; Early Access Journal: ADVANCED MATERIALS Publication date: 2020/06/01 DOI: 10.1002/adma.202002072 Abstract: Atom scattering is becoming recognized as a sensitive probe of the electron-phonon interaction parameter lambda at metal and metal-overlayer surfaces. Here, the theory is developed, linking lambda to the thermal attenuation of atom scattering spectra [...]

Topological bulk states and their currents

Authors: Self, Chris N.; Rubio-Garcia, Alvaro; Jose Garcia-Ripoll, Juan; Pachos, Jiannis K. Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW B Publication date: 2020/07/23 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.102.045424 Abstract: We provide evidence that, alongside topologically protected edge states, two-dimensional Chern insulators also support localized bulk states deep in their valence and conduction bands. These states manifest when local potential gradients are [...]
