  • A bstractWe study the addition of quantum fermionic impurities to the $ \mathcal{N} $ = 6 super-symmetric Chern-Simons-matter theories in 2 + 1 spacetime dimensions. The impurities are introduced by means of Wilson loops in the antisymmetric representation of the gauge group. In a holographic setup, the system is represented by considering D6-branes probing the AdS4×$ \mathbb{C}\mathbb{P} $3 background of type IIA supergravity. We study the thermodynamic properties of the system and show how a… CONTINUE READING
