@article{Decker2020FloquetET, title={Floquet Engineering Topological Many-Body Localized Systems.}, author={Kevin S.C. Decker and C. Karrasch and Jens Eisert and Dante M. Kennes}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2020}, volume={124 19}, pages={ 190601 } }

We show how second-order Floquet engineering can be employed to realize systems in which many-body localization coexists with topological properties in a driven system. This allows one to implement and dynamically control a symmetry protected topologically ordered qubit even at high energies, overcoming the roadblock that the respective states cannot be prepared as ground states of nearest-neighbor Hamiltonians. Floquet engineering-the idea that a periodically driven nonequilibrium system can… Expand
