Weakly interacting Fermi gases provide a rich platform for investigating information spreading and spin coherence in a large many-body quantum system with effective long-range interactions and conserved single-atom energies. We demonstrate a new protocol for the study of information scrambling, employing an inverse Abel-transform to extract energy-resolved out-of-time-order correlation functions and many-body coherence from the spatial profiles of the spin density.

Spin-energy correlation in degenerate weakly interacting Fermi gases

Weakly interacting Fermi gases exhibit rich collective dynamics in spin-dependent potentials, arising from correlations between spin degrees of freedom and conserved single atom energies, offering

Treelike Interactions and Fast Scrambling with Cold Atoms.

An experimentally realizable quantum spin model that exhibits fast scrambling, based on nonlocal interactions that couple sites whose separation is a power of 2.5, offers a test case for experimentally observing the emergent geometry of a quantum many-body system.

Quantum Information Scrambling in a Trapped-Ion Quantum Simulator with Tunable Range Interactions.

First experimental demonstrations of quantum information scrambling on a 10-qubit trapped-ion quantum simulator representing a tunable long-range interacting spin system are presented, by estimating out-of-time ordered correlators (OTOCs) through randomized measurements.

Dynamics of Interacting Fermions in Spin-Dependent Potentials.

A framework for studying the dynamics of weakly interacting fermionic gases following a spin-dependent change of the trapping potential which illuminates the interplay between spin, motion, Fermi statistics, and interactions is developed.

Spin segregation via dynamically induced long-range interactions in a system of ultracold fermions

We investigate theoretically the time evolution of a one-dimensional system of spin-1/2 fermions in a harmonic trap after, initially, a spiral spin configuration far from equilibrium is created. We

Anomalous spin segregation in a weakly interacting two-component Fermi gas

We explain the spin segregation seen at Duke in a two-component gas of {sup 6}Li [X. Du, L. Luo, B. Clancy, and J. E. Thomas, Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 150401 (2008)] as a mean-field effect describable

A spin self-rephasing mechanism induced by the identical spin rotation effect originating from the exchange interaction is proposed and good agreement with the experimental observations is obtained.

Controlling spin current in a trapped Fermi gas.

Control of the spin current is demonstrated by creating a spin current and then reversing its flow, predicted by a spin vector evolution equation in energy representation, which shows how the spin and energy of individual atoms become correlated in the nearly undamped regime of the experiments.

Observation of a transition between dynamical phases in a quantum degenerate Fermi gas

It is found that below a critical interaction strength, magnetization of an initially polarized fermionic gas decays quickly, while above the transition point, the magnetization becomes long-lived because of an energy gap that protects against dephasing by the inhomogeneous axial field.

Cavity-QED simulator of slow and fast scrambling

We study information scrambling, as diagnosed by the out-of-time order correlations (OTOCs), in a system of large spins collectively interacting via spatially inhomogeneous and incommensurate
