# Can we observe the many-body localization?

@inproceedings{Sierant2021CanWO, title={Can we observe the many-body localization?}, author={Piotr Sierant and Jakub J. Zakrzewski}, year={2021} }

We study time dynamics of 1D disordered Heisenberg spin-1/2 chain focusing on a regime of large system sizes and a long time evolution. This regime is relevant for observation of manybody localization (MBL), a phenomenon that is expected to freeze the dynamics of the system and prevent it from reaching thermal equilibrium. Performing extensive numerical simulations of the imbalance, a quantity often employed in the experimental studies of MBL, we show that the regime of a slow power-law decay…
