We investigate multicomponent fermions in a flat band and predict experimental signatures of non-Fermi-liquid behavior. We use dynamical mean-field theory to obtain the density, double occupancy and entropy in a Lieb lattice for $\mathcal{N}=2$ and $\mathcal{N}=4$ components. We derive a mean-field scaling relation between the results for different values of $\mathcal{N}$, and study its breakdown due to beyond mean-field effects. The predicted signatures occur at temperatures above the N\'eel…

Kondo lattice mediated interactions in flat-band systems

Electronic flat bands represent a paradigmatic platform to realize strongly correlated matter due to their associated divergent density of states. In common instances, including electron-electron



Extended Crossover from a Fermi Liquid to a Quasiantiferromagnet in the Half-Filled 2D Hubbard Model.

This work addresses the problem of how the interaction-driven insulator is realized nontrivial in the thermodynamic limit using self-energy diagrammatic determinant Monte Carlo and dynamical cluster approximation methods and shows that development of long-range AFM correlations drives an extended crossover from Fermi liquid to insulating behavior in the parameter regime that precludes a metal-to-insulator transition.

Temperature and doping induced instabilities of the repulsive Hubbard model on the Lieb lattice

The properties of a phase at finite interactions can be significantly influenced by the underlying dispersion of the non-interacting Hamiltonian. We demonstrate this by studying the repulsive Hubbard

Metallic and Insulating Phases of Repulsively Interacting Fermions in a 3D Optical Lattice

This work was able to directly measure the compressibility of the quantum gas in the trap using in situ imaging and independent control of external confinement and lattice depth, to demonstrate the potential to model interacting condensed-matter systems using ultracold fermionic atoms.

Geometric Origin of Superfluidity in the Lieb-Lattice Flat Band.

It is shown that the superfluid weight can be large even for an isolated and strictly flat band, proportional to the interaction strength and to the quantum metric, a band structure quantity derived solely from the flat-band Bloch functions.

Néel transition of lattice fermions in a harmonic trap: a real-space dynamic mean-field study.

It is established that antiferromagnetic correlations are signaled, at strong coupling, by an enhanced double occupancy, and this signature is directly accessible experimentally and should be observable well above the critical temperature for long-range order.

Bosonic Condensation and Disorder-Induced Localization in a Flat Band.

The engineering of a nondispersive (flat) energy band in a geometrically frustrated lattice of micropillar optical cavities offers a novel approach to studying coherent phases of light and matter under the controlled interplay of frustration, interactions, and dissipation.

Preformed pairs in flat Bloch bands

In a flat Bloch band the kinetic energy is quenched and single particles cannot propagate since they are localized due to destructive interference. Whether this remains true in the presence of

Thermodynamics of the 3D Hubbard model on approaching the Néel transition.

The thermodynamic properties of the 3D Hubbard model for temperatures down to the Néel temperature are studied by using cluster dynamical mean-field theory and Precursors to antiferromagnetism can clearly be observed in nearest-neighbor spin correlators.

Magnetization, d -wave superconductivity, and non-Fermi-liquid behavior in a crossover from dispersive to flat bands

We explore the effect of inhomogeneity on electronic properties of the two-dimensional Hubbard model on a square lattice using dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). The inhomogeneity is introduced via

A cold-atom Fermi–Hubbard antiferromagnet

The results demonstrate that microscopy of cold atoms in optical lattices can help to understand the low-temperature Fermi–Hubbard model and provide a valuable benchmark for numerical simulations.
