Engineering dissipative quasicrystals
We discuss the systematic engineering of quasicrystals in open quantum systems where quasiperiodicity is introduced through purely dissipative processes. While the resulting short-time dynamics is
Liouvillian Skin Effect in an Exactly Solvable Model
The interplay between dissipation, topology and sensitivity to boundary conditions has recently attracted tremendous amounts of attention at the level of effective non-Hermitian descriptions. Here we

Observation of the topological soliton state in the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model
The Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model, which captures the most striking transport properties of the conductive organic polymer trans-polyacetylene, provides perhaps the most basic model system supporting topological excitations, and quantum simulation of this model and observation of the localized topological soliton state are reported on.
Topological characterizations of an extended Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model
The Su–Schrieffer–Heeger (SSH) model perhaps is the easiest and the most basic model for topological excitations. Many variations and extensions of the SSH model have been proposed and explored to
Topological zero-energy modes in gapless commensurate Aubry-André-Harper models.
It is shown that the commensurate off-diagonal AAH model is topologically nontrivial in the gapless regime and supports zero-energy edge modes.
Information Restrain in Open Quantum Systems
Non-Hermitian skin effect of Liouvillian superoperators in quantum open systems can induce phenomena of non-trivial damping, known as chiral/helical damping. While non-Hermitian skin effect and
Topological Anderson insulators in two-dimensional non-Hermitian disordered systems
The interplay among topology, disorder, and non-Hermiticity can induce some exotic topological and localization phenomena. Here we investigate this interplay in a two-dimensional non-Hermitian
Dynamical and steady-state properties of a Bose-Hubbard chain with bond dissipation: A study based on matrix product operators
We study a dissipative Bose-Hubbard chain subject to an engineered bath using a superoperator approach based on matrix product operators. The dissipation is engineered to stabilize a BEC condensate
Floquet engineering of topological localization transitions in non-Hermitian quasicrystals
Time-periodic driving fields could endow a system with peculiar topological and transport features. In this work, we find dynamically controlled localization transitions in non-Hermitian
Vortex pinning and non-Hermitian quantum mechanics
A delocalization phenomenon is studied in a class of non-Hermitian random quantum-mechanical problems. Delocalization arises in response to a sufficiently large constant imaginary vector potential.
Topological phases in non-Hermitian Aubry-André-Harper models
Topological phases have recently witnessed a rapid progress in non-Hermitian systems. Here we study a one-dimensional non-Hermitian Aubry-Andre-Harper model with imaginary periodic or quasiperiodic
