Quantum time crystals are systems characterized by spontaneously emerging periodic order in the time domain 1 . While originally a phase of broken time translation symmetry was a mere speculation 2 , a wide range of time crystals has been reported 3 – 5 . However, the dynamics and interactions between such systems have not been investigated experimentally. Here we study two adjacent quantum time crystals realized by two magnon condensates in superfluid 3 He-B. We observe an exchange of magnons… 

All-optical dissipative discrete time crystals

Time crystals are periodic states exhibiting spontaneous symmetry breaking in either time-independent or periodically-driven quantum many-body systems. Spontaneous modification of discrete

Stroboscopic aliasing in long-range interacting quantum systems

We unveil a mechanism for generating oscillations with arbitrary multiplets of the period of a given external drive, in long-range interacting quantum many-particle spin systems. These oscillations

Confinement of Bose–Einstein magnon condensates in adjustable complex magnetization landscapes

Coherent wave states such as Bose–Einstein condensates (BECs), which spontaneously form in an overpopulated magnon gas even at room temperature, have considerable potential for wave-based computing

Symmetry-protected topological corner modes in a periodically driven interacting spin lattice

Periodic driving has a longstanding reputation for generating exotic phases of matter with no static counterparts. This work explores the interplay between periodic driving, interaction effects, and Z

Emergence and Dynamical Stability of a Charge Time-Crystal in a Current-Carrying Quantum Dot Simulator.

Periodically driven open quantum systems that never thermalize exhibit a discrete time-crystal behavior, a nonequilibrium quantum phenomenon that has shown promise in quantum information processing

Genuine multipartite correlations in a boundary time crystal

In this work we study genuine multipartite correlations (GMC’s) in a boundary time crystal (BTC). Boundary time crystals are nonequilibrium quantum phases of matter in contact to an environment, for



Observation of a Time Quasicrystal and Its Transition to a Superfluid Time Crystal.

We report experimental realization of a quantum time quasicrystal and its transformation to a quantum time crystal. We study Bose-Einstein condensation of magnons, associated with coherent spin

Classical discrete time crystals

The spontaneous breaking of time-translation symmetry in periodically driven quantum systems leads to a new phase of matter: the discrete time crystal (DTC). This phase exhibits collective

Discrete Time Crystals

Experimental advances have allowed for the exploration of nearly isolated quantum many-body systems whose coupling to an external bath is very weak. A particularly interesting class of such systems

Experimental observation of Josephson oscillations in a room-temperature Bose-Einstein magnon condensate

The alternating current (ac) Josephson effect in a time-independent spatially-inhomogeneous setting is manifested by the occurrence of Josephson oscillations - periodic macroscopic phase-induced

Josephson effect in fermionic superfluids across the BEC-BCS crossover

It is shown that the relative population and phase are canonically conjugate dynamical variables throughout the crossover from the molecular Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) to the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) superfluid regime and the dynamics of the superfluids become dissipative, which is ascribed to the propagation of vortices through the superfluid bulk.

It is demonstrated that the coherent precession of magnetization is a true BEC of magnons, with theMagnon interaction term in the Gross-Pitaevskii equation being provided by spin-orbit coupling which is different for different states of the magnon BEC.

Bogoliubov waves and distant transport of magnon condensate at room temperature

Experimentalally the condensed magnons forming compact humps of BEC density can propagate many hundreds of micrometers in the form of Bogoliubov waves, which advances the physics of quasiparticles and allows for the application of related transport phenomena for low-loss data transfer in magnon spintronics devices.
