# Cavity-mediated electron hopping in disordered quantum Hall systems

@article{Ciuti2021CavitymediatedEH, title={Cavity-mediated electron hopping in disordered quantum Hall systems}, author={Cristiano Ciuti}, journal={arXiv: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics}, year={2021} }

We investigate the emergence of long-range electron hopping mediated by cavity vacuum fields in disordered quantum Hall systems. We show that the counter-rotating (anti-resonant) light-matter interaction produces an effective hopping between disordered eigenstates within the last occupied Landau band. The process involves a number of intermediate states equal to the Landau degeneracy: each of these states consists of a virtual cavity photon and an electron excited in the next Landau band with… Expand

This work considers both ideal contacts without elastic scattering and also disordered contacts, and finds that the quantum Hall effect occurs only if the sample exhibits at least two sets of equilibrated edge states which do not interact via elastic or inelastic scattering. Expand

Time-resolved four-wave-mixing experiments on a two-dimensional electron system embedded in an optical cavity show enhanced polariton–polariton interactions in the fractional quantum Hall regime, which could facilitate the realization of strongly interacting photonic systems, and suggest that nonlinear optical measurements could provide information about fractional Quantum Hall states that is not accessible through their linear optical response.
