An interacting system subjected to a strong linear potential can host a many-body localized (MBL) phase when being slightly perturbed. This so-called Wannier-Stark or ‘tilted-field’ MBL phase inherits many properties from the well-investigated disordered MBL phase, and provides an alternative route to experimentally engineer interacting localized systems without quenched disorder. In this work, we investigate the dynamics of entanglement in a Wannier-Stark MBL system coupled to a dephasing… 


Bath-Induced Decay of Stark Many-Body Localization.
The relaxation dynamics of an interacting Stark-localized system coupled to a dephasing bath is investigated, and it is found that a logarithmically slow growth of the von Neumann entropy is not found for the disordered system.
Role of interactions in a dissipative many-body localized system
Recent experimental and theoretical efforts have focused on the effect of dissipation on quantum many-body systems in their many-body localized (MBL) phase. While in the presence of dephasing noise
Observation of Stark many-body localization without disorder.
The results demonstrate the unexpected generality of MBL, with implications about the fundamental requirements for thermalization and with potential uses in engineering long-lived non-equilibrium quantum matter.
Robustness of Many-Body Localization in the Presence of Dissipation.
It is found that, even though the system is eventually driven into an infinite-temperature state, heating as monitored by the von Neumann entropy can progress logarithmically slowly, implying exponentially large time scales for relaxation.
Probing entanglement in a many-body–localized system
This work experimentally establishes many-body localization as a qualitatively distinct phenomenon from localization in noninteracting, disordered systems in a disordered Bose-Hubbard chain.
Unbounded growth of entanglement in models of many-body localization.
The significance for proposed atomic experiments is that local measurements will show a large but nonthermal entropy in the many-body localized state, which develops slowly over a diverging time scale as in glassy systems.
Dynamics of many-body localisation in a translation invariant quantum glass model
We study the real-time dynamics of a translationally invariant quantum spin chain, based on the East kinetically constrained glass model, in search for evidence of many-body localisation in the
Signatures of Many-Body Localization in a Controlled Open Quantum System
In the presence of disorder, an interacting closed quantum system can undergo many-body localization (MBL) and fail to thermalize. However, over long times, even weak couplings to any thermal
From Bloch oscillations to many-body localization in clean interacting systems
It is demonstrated that nonrandom mechanisms that lead to single-particle localization may also lead to many-body localization, even in the absence of disorder, and a class of generic nonrandom models that fail to thermalize are constituted, which suggest new directions for experimentally exploring and understanding the phenomena of many- body localization.
Probing Slow Relaxation and Many-Body Localization in Two-Dimensional Quasiperiodic Systems
In a many-body localized (MBL) quantum system, the ergodic hypothesis breaks down, giving rise to a fundamentally new many-body phase. Whether and under which conditions MBL can occur in higher
