Floquet Majorana Edge Mode and Non-Abelian Anyons in a Driven Kitaev Model

  author={Masahiro Sato and Yuki Sasaki and Takashi Oka},
  journal={arXiv: Strongly Correlated Electrons},
We theoretically study laser driven nonequilibrium states in the Kitaev honeycomb model with a magnetoelectric cross coupling. We show that a topological spin liquid with a gapless chiral edge mode emerges when we apply an elliptically or circularly polarized laser. This is a strongly correlated quantum spin version of the Floquet topological insulator. In the topological phase, the edge mode is made from Majorana fermions and the bulk has gapped non-Abelian anyon excitations.

Floquet Topological Superfluid and Majorana Zero Modes in Two-Dimensional Periodically Driven Fermi Systems
The periodic driving can induce topological phase transitions between trivial superfluid and Floquet topological superfluid, and the anomalous bulk-boundary correspondence is verified, namely that the robust chiral Floquet edge states can appear even when the winding number of all the bulk Floquet bands is zero.

Topology and localization of a periodically driven Kitaev model
Periodically driven quantum many-body systems support anomalous topological phases of matter, which cannot be realized by static systems. In many cases, these anomalous phases can be many-bodyExpand
A General Time-Periodic Driving Approach to Realize Topological Phases in Cold Atomic Systems
It is found that the time-reversal symmetric Kane-Mele model can be effectively driven from the trivial phase to topological phases named as Floquet Quantum Spin Hall insulator. Expand

We discuss DC electric-field controls of superexchange interactions. We first present generic results about antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic superexchange interactions valid in a broad class ofExpand
