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. Herein, the dynamics of entanglement in a Wannier–Stark MBL system coupled to a dephasing environment is… 


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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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 steady states of open quantum systems
Many-body localization (MBL) is a result of the balance between interference-based Anderson localization and many-body interactions in an ultra-high dimensional Fock space. It is usually expected
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
